It's A Beautiful World Tour

Hello everyone! Welcome to the September Flourishes Beautiful World Tour!!!
Once again, it's time to get those passports, grab a cup of coffee and get ready for take off as we prepare to travel the world and be inspired by talented girls from around the globe!
A big thank you to those of you who travelled the globe with us last month, and stamped our passports, (left comments), we were thrilled to have you join in with us on our maiden flight.
Do you know that your travels around the Flourishes World gives you the opportunity to WIN??  All we ask is that you do a little globe trotting and leave us a comment, and you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!!! The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this months vacation spot, (chosen blog).  So leave a comment on each one by September 30th for your chance to win!!!!
This month our hostess is Anne-Elise, and she's challenged us to remember our friends. Where would we be without our friends?  We laugh together, cry together and share our dreams with one another. We are always there for one another in good times and bad. Today we remember our friends with Sympathy, Missing You, Thinking of You, or even Wishing You Were Here cards, and perhaps we will even have a special story about those friends who have inspired us along the way.
If you've jetted in from Naomi, in beautiful B.C. Canada, then you've arrived at the right destination! If you haven't, then perhaps you would like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss any of the beautiful inspiration along the way.
My card is dedicated to my lovely loyal friend who I have known since we were little girls.  We don't get to see one another much, as she emigrated quite a few years ago, but thanks to the wonderful world of the internet, we email one another lots...
I have made my card using several layers of Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight. 
On my top layer I stamped my bouquet from the beautiful Flourishes 'Summer Blossoms' set of stamps.
My sentiment is from Flourishes 'Tag Lines' set of stamps.  I coloured with ProMarkers and added glossy accents to my berries and the centres of my two largest flowers.

To complete, I added some bling and a double organza bow.
Thank you for visiting me here in England.  It's now time to grab your passport and board Flourishes Flight BWT, where your next destination is...

Your colouring has brought the flowers to life and the pop of the paper behind is so very pretty. I'm sure your friend will love her card and I think it's great that you're in touch with someone you knew as a little girl, doesn't often happen these days. Have a good week, Chris x
