Flourishes February Beautiful World Tour - It's A Sketch!


Good morning everyone and welcome to another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour.  This month our hostess is Iwona, and she has created a beautiful sketch for us.
So once again it's time to sit back, travel the world with us, and see what each DT member has created using their fabulous Flourishes stamps.
As always, to join in with the fun, you will need to leave a comment on each designers blog by 28th February to be in with the chance of winning.....A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!!
If you arrived here from Anne-Elise's blog then you're in the right place.  If not, then you need to hop back to the Flourishes blog, and start your tour from there.
Here is Iwona's sketch...
and here's my card...
I embossed the top third of my card, and then added my Cheery Lynn doily die.  I stamped the beautiful rose bouquet from Flourishes - 'Roses are Red' set of stamps onto a Spellbinders circle die, and coloured with Pro Markers. I then added my Venetian red seam binding bow.  My sentiment is from Flourishes - 'Sentimental Favourites' set of stamps.
I decided to make a matching tag.  The image is also from 'Roses are Red' set, and 'Smile' is from 'Taglines'.
All stamps are from Flourishes and my seam binding is from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
Thank you for visiting me today.  Your next destination is Iwona, in beautiful Australia.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...
