Lavinia Stamps Challenge - Summer Colours

Hi everyone, I'm back......can't believe it's almost 2 weeks since I last blogged. 
Last week we had a fab break in Broad Haven, and I just didn't want to come home to all the usual routine....I LOVE  being at the coast!
Anyway, now we're  home, and I'm trying to catch up on all my DT work, starting with the new challenge at 
The theme this month is SUMMER COLOURS....and as usual, there is a £40 prize for the winning entry.
(you can also enter by email now, if you're not into blogging)
So, here are my DT creations for this challenge.......

 All cardstock is from 
Inks are Colour Chemistry by
I've used NINE different Lavinia stamps on this card.

These 2 colours remind me of my garden, so are definitely 'Summer Colours'

And, of course, these are my HOT summer colours, used with gold, fine embossing powder from
Oak House Studio....second to none, in my opinion.
Hope you like my challenge samples.

I'll be back later in the week with the new 'special offer' from Papermill, and details of a fab event at 
Oak House Studio.
Catch you soon,
Barbara x
