Have you seen the new magical challenge blog that
is offering their first challenge today?  It's called
Lavinia World Challenges ... check it out!

It just so happens I ordered a few of these Lavinia papers & stamps over at the Dies R Us Store (thought they were unique and intriguing) before Lavinia started up their own store here in the US and today launched their new challenge blog.  So I was all set to create and share when it came live.  This was a lot of fun and their new DT has some amazing inspiration to share on the blog ... like I said ... don't forget to check it out!!

Here's what I came up with . . .

Product used:

Lavinia Papers - A6 - Pink Equinox

Lavinia Stamp - Sky
Lavinia Stamp - Mia

Lavinia Stamp - Slender Mushrooms Miniature

Lavinia Stamps - Mini Leaf 1 Miniature

I could have added a bit of sparkle to the wings (didn't think about it until just now) but it still looks pretty cool just the way it is.   I wanted to add a sentiment but got carried away with my overall scene so simply die cut the Memory Box Fancy Believe (#1280) from white card stock and added it to the bottom.

I've added the item NUMBERS to the end of each linked description above so you can also find these stamps at the Lavinia Store.

I think these stamps would be awesome for kids birthday cards!
What little kid doesn't believe in magic & fairies!!

Be sure to check 'em out and come play along!  I can already see my wishlist growing LOL!!  This was so much fun to create.

Have a great day all!!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
