Lavinia Stamps - a new addiction!

I've finally succumbed to the fabulous Lavinia Stamps and this is my first card using this technique!  I just love all the little elements you can buy to make up your scene and it makes a change not to colour up an image first!  
I wasn't going to do the embelllishment thing with this card, but was actually pleased I did, as I like the overall effect.
I finished off with a Punch a round the Page set from Martha Stewart.
I made the card for my younger sister whose birthday was this week - the first since her husband passed earlier this year and the moon has special significance for her and her family, so I wanted to reference that.  
Such a difficult time still, and she is doing amazing!!

Spectacular, Julie! The pansy edge and the magnificent floral embellishments so enhance your beautifully inked background. You nailed that! Is the scenery Lavinia too? I didn't spot you buying it!!! Hugs, Lesley
