Lavinia Stamps

Hi All

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today I am sharing a card using Lavinia stamps, I wanted to create something different using the stamps we had and here's the result.

White Card 14cm x 14cm
Silver Centura Pearl 14.7cm x 14.7cm

For the main image, I started with the Silhouette House Pods, bending the stalks to form the ring. I used the end of the Ivy to add foliage around the stalks. Finally I used Stampin' Marker to selectively colour the Spider's Web so I didn't have to use a mask to cover the pods.

I used the same stamps and colours on a 1cm x 14cm strip of paper before folding it to create the tiny flower. Isn't it cute? I wanted the focus on the main image so to finish the card I just added a strip of ribbon and a couple of gems.

What sentiment or occasion do you think fits the image?

I am entering this card to the following challenges:
