Live the Life You Love -- For Lavinia World

Today is a big day!  It's the start of the first challenge at the Lavinia World Challenge Blog, and my first official post on the Lavinia Stamps team!  Challenges will be every other Thursday, so they will run for 2 weeks.  You must use a rubber or clear stamp -- no digis will be accepted.  Using a Lavinia World stamp doubles your chances of winning! 

I used 2 Lavinia World stamp sets on this card: 

I used one of the Fairy Dandelions stamps on this.  I heat embossed it with black embossing powder, then used Tim Holtz Distress inks to blend the colors on the oval panel.  I cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment stamp, also from Lavinia World Stamps, is "Live the Life You Love" .  Each word is individual, so it was easy to stamp each one on a small piece of paper to create the effect on this card.

I cut the card base out on my Silhouette Cameo 3 with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.

The dandelion background paper is from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is from the Dandelion Wishes Collection.   

The lace was purchased at Hobby Lobby, and the crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM, a store no longer in business.
