Flourishes Beautiful World Tour

Good morning everyone! If you visited yesterday you will already know how excited I am to be joining the 'Flourishes Beautiful World Tour' team, working with some very talented, lovely ladies from around the world.
Each month you can travel the globe with us. We are represented by Australia, United States, Canada, Finland, Germany and England. Each month one of the team will be hosting the hop on the Flourishes blog. To start us off this month...it's the lovely Kathy from Austrailia.
So.....what does this mean for YOU??  Instead of this being a challenge, all we ask is that you do a litttle globe trotting, and stamp our passports, (leave us a comment), and you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!!  Yes, that's right, just leave a comment for the chance to win. The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this weeks vacation spot, (chosen blog), so you will need to leave a comment on each one by AUGUST 31st for a chance to win.
If you've jetted in from beautiful Canada, from Meredith's Blog then you're at the right destination.  If you haven't, perhaps you would like to start your journey back in Florida, at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way.
Our theme this month is to be inspired by a song. My song choice is 'The Rose' by Bette Midler. The words are just so beautiful, and for my card I chose to use the beautiful 'Lenten Rose' set of stamps...
I embossed my card base and then stamped my image onto a Labels Twenty Two Nestability.  I then framed my image with another label. I coloured with PM's and then stamped my sentiment from  'Botanical Bookplates'. To finish I stamped a butterfly from 'Butterflies and Blossoms' onto a seperate piece of card, cut it out and popped it up to give some dimension.
I hope you've enjoyed your visit to England...the next stop on your Beautiful World Tour is Australia and Iwona's blog
Thank you for stopping by! 
Enjoy your travels! x

So pretty Sasha. I love it all, the white, the embossing, the frame, the coloring, everything! It was fun coming from the Flourishes blog hop. I had to really restrain myself from clicking from the sidebar on my blog like I always do, because I knew it would mess up my order on the hop.
