Lavinia Challenge Blog 5 - Birthday Girl

So - it's May already! Well done to last month's winner Michelle, I know you'll have fun picking out £40 worth of goodies from the Lavinia web shop. Hope you'll all have a go this month where our theme is -

Birthday Girl

- remember you don't have to have a blog if you don't want one, just email your entry in via the link on the website or click here - couldn't be easier.

My entry this month  ......

............sorry, should have warned you that you might want your sunglasses for this one!

I used bright Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade  for the background, simply blended before stamping with the Zen Single Grass stamp and adding some die cut lettering. The topper was made with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar flicked with water before stamping with Zen Maple Leaf and Zen Grass. The flower was made by stamping Zen Flower 3 in white EP on vellum before cutting up and adding a gem.

Hope you will visit the other members of the design team, they really have made some stunning samples to give you more inspiration and then maybe have a go yourself - go on - you could be a winner too!

Sorry no sewing project as yet this month - April got away from me! Will catch up soon :-) , thank you so much for looking.
