January Beautiful World Tour.

Beautiful World Graphic
Hello Everyone and welcome to the January Flourishes Beautiful World Tour! Meredith is our hostess this month and she chose to challenge us to create a tag!

Did you know that your travels around the Flourishes World gives you the opportunity to WIN a free FLOURISHES STAMP SET?? All we ask is that you leave a comment on each one by January 31st for your chance to win!

If you've jetted in from Kathy's blog, then you have arrived at the right destination! If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss all the beautiful inspiration along the way!

For my tag, I used the beautiful flowers of the Bloomin' Aussie Florals stamp set. The flowers are made with a few layers of vellum. I colored the image with the following Copic markers:

Copic Sketch Candy Pink CollectionCopic Sketch Lenten Rose Collection

Green Grass





I cut the image with my Silhouette Cameo. You can find the cut file here. The oval pierced background is made with the beautiful Victorian oval die. I stamped the white background with the retired Damask Background stamp. I clear embossed it and I love the way it looks. I just added some pearls, seam binding, ribbons, twine and a cute little tag. The sentiment is from the Tiny Flowers and Tags set. I also stitched the edges and here it is:




I wish we could already see beautiful flowers in the garden, but everything is covered with snow... we will have to wait for a few more months! Now we are enjoying going skating and skiing with the children. Winter is nice when the weather isn't too cold!

Thanks for taking time to visit me, it's time to grab your passports and board the Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is:
