August Beautiful World Tour.

Beautiful World Graphic

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the August Beautiful World Tour! This month our lovely hostess is Naomi and the theme is a Flower Representing Our Country.

Did you know that your travel around 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 August 31st for your chance to win!!

If you are doing the whole hop and have arrived straight from the Flourishes Blog, you are in the right place!

For my card, I chose the beautiful Waterlilies stamp set. I embossed the flower with white embossing powder on vellum and fussy cut three layers. The leaves were colored with the Copic Sketch Green Grass Collection. The pink layer under the waterlily is made with one of the Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals Dies. I also made a cute little heart charm with the Simply Charming stamp set. I added a Solid Wrinkled Ivory bow, some lace and Kraft and Ivory twine. I stitched the edges and added three little pins and rhinestones to finish it off!

Finland is a country of thousands of lakes, about 188 000 lakes! In many of them you can find different types of beautiful water flowers, but these ones are my favorite! They are just gorgeous! Last summer our kids found a baby frog in the garden of our summer cottage and they put it on a waterlily. We took some pictures before putting the cute little frog back in the lake!
