May Lavinia Stamps Challenge - Pink or Blue

Hi Everyone, does anyone else wonder where April went?  I hope you managed to get a chance to join in the April Challenge - a very worthy winner for a really great challenge.  Another month and another challenge over at Lavinia Stamps and this month it is pink or blue so I do hope you will be able to join in.  Remember you do not have to have a blog as we accept e-mail entries.  The prize for the winner is £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps.

This month I have one blue one and one pink one to show you:

For this one I have used the Zen butterfly and yes it is one of my favourites.  The background is made with Brushos and it looked a bit like a butterfly so I felt it was crying out for a butterfly stamp.  I also used the flowers from Leaf Trail.

For this card I used distress ink Picked Raspberry which I put on with a brush and then used a stencil to add the pink bubbles.  I used my very favourite fairy stamp Giselle and added some Stickles to her wings.  I used the bottom of Creeping vine and zen leaf to decorate the  bottom and the top.

Hope you will be able to join us for this month's challenge.  Good luck and have a great Bank Holiday weekend.  Kx

I must say, these are both lovely(that butterfly stamp is one of my favourites, too) but I really like your pink card - the way you've used just a small part of the creeping vine and zen leaf enhances the simple border you've made beautifully.
Thanks for the inspiration

Two fab cards, Karen.....really like them both for different reasons. Clever use of the little flowers on the blue card, and lovely soft tones of pink on the other....I too wonder where April went, in fact where the whole year has gone so far! xx
