March Beautiful World Tour.

Beautiful World Graphic
Hello Everyone and welcome to the March Beautiful World Tour! Once again, it's time to get those passports ready, grab a cup of coffee and prepare to travel the world! Sasha is our hostess this month and she chose to challenge us to create a bookmark!

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 March 31st for your chance to win!!

If you've jetted in from Dina'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 bookmark, I chose the beautiful Botanical Bookplate Vol. 1 stamp set. The image is stamped and die cut with the Classic Bookplate Template Die. I added some white liquid pearls in the middle of the flowers to give them some dimension. The second layer is made with the Pierced Victorian Oval die. I stitched the edges and added some ribbon, seam binding, lace and twine.





I wish you all a great day! Here in Finland we still have a lot of snow but today the sun is shining! So nice to see the sunshine but we are still freezing... -20 degrees Celsius (-4 F) this morning!! Thanks for taking time to visit me, it's time to grab your passport and board the Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is:
