Lavinia Challenge 2 - Bright & Beautiful

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all been enjoying your Easter break.  I have just got back from a few days "back home" in Exeter, staying with my Mum.  I am now very relaxed and have caught up with my sleep as well as catching up with the family.

Enough of that, April the 1st so the start of a new Challenge over at Lavinia Stamps Challenge Blog.
The Challenge this month is Bright & Beautiful so pop over and join in, there is a fantastic prize up for grabs.  Here is my design.

First of all I used distress inks to the non pearlised side of Centura Pearl card, using picked raspberry, peacock feathers and shaded lilac for the background then I stamped the beautiful Lavinia Stamps Fairy Castle 2, using Vine around 3/4 of the edge and ended with Willow from the top (all of which can be seen here) to which I added stickles to give it a little sparkle (who can resist a bit of sparkle?). 

Thanks for looking.

Welcome Sue as a new follower and thank you everyone for your very kind comments.

See you soon.  Kx
