Hi everyone

I am delighted to be back with another Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Sweet Stamping   The  theme to this Challenge is entitled  'Photo Inspiration' 

I thought you might like to know a little about this photo.  It was taken at Riva on Lake Garda, Italy 3 years ago when we were celebrating our Pearl Wedding Anniversary.  It stood outside the most beautiful Lavender goodies shop I have ever seen.  You will see that it is lavishly decorated with two pretty little pots at the foot.  There is even a bowl of lavender soaps suspended from the handlebars and can you see that Gift Bag?.  Inside the shop was the most beautiful selection of Lavender themed gifts to purchase, all gift wrapped in celophane and of course the scent of Lavender wafted through to us (wthout getting into your throat) when we walked through the door.  I was enchanted with it. 

There is a a lovely sponsor: 

Challenge Theme: - PHOTO INSPIRATION (courtesy of Judy (that's ME! ) from her hols )
Sponsor: - The Hobby house - £10 

I found this so inspiring and here is what I came up with. I made a set comprising Lavender Bag, Greeting Card and Gift Bag.  I have used a lovely Digi image from Fresh Brewed Designs on the inside of the card, flowers from Live and Love Crafts and lots of lace and pearls.  Andit smells gorgeous!


Please do pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work here.  It is a lovely Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!
