Lavinia Stamps September Challenge "Add Some Ribbon"

Morning all,
I can't believe it's Sept already!
Today is the start of the new Lavinia Stamps Challenge over on the Blog, here's the direct link -
September, Challenge 9 "Add Some Ribbon".
Congratulations to last month's randomly chosen lucky winner, £40 to spend with the bonus of new stamps that Tracey has designed and just released to choose from, lucky winner!
There's such a great mix of versatile stamps and if you check out the rest of the DT's work you'll see some fantastic inspiration as always.
We received fabulous entries again last month so many thanks to everyone who joined us for the challenge.
Anyway on to my inspiration, I decided to make some shaped cards from nesting die sets, keeping the  stamping simple. I layered up the nesting shapes on my base cards with complimenting colours.
The backgrounds and wording were created from stencils, including a couple from Sweet Poppy.
Then the images, group poppies, thistles and roses stamped in black versafine.
Finishing off with my ribbon and a few gems.
As always we look forward to seeing your entries which can now be by email too, so why not have a go, good luck!
Thanks for stopping by today...xKx
