Flourishes April Beautiful World Tour - Childhood


Hello everyone and a warm welcome.  It's April 1st and time for another  Flourishes Beautiful World Tour. Once again it's time to travel the world with us for the chance of winning a FREE Flourishes Stamp Set!!!  But please remember that you will need to leave a comment on every designers blog by the 30th April to be in with a chance of winning.
If you arrived here from Dina's blog then you're in the right place...if not, you will need to start your tour back in Florida at the Flourishes blog.

This month, Anne-Elise has challenged us to create something with the theme of 'Childhood'.
When I  was a little girl I spent many happy and long sunny days in the garden with my lovely dad. He gave me my own little patch and taught me how to sow seeds and I grew my own flowers and veggies.  The image I used is from the Flourishes 'Sweet Days of Summer' stamp set which was a perfect choice for me...

For my image, I first sponged my colours and then stamped my image with tuxedo black ink. My sentiment is also from the 'Sweet Days of Summer' stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your next destination is Aleksandra in beautiful Slovenia...

What a beautiful scene you created Sasha, with these vibrant colours in that gorgeous sky! I love the silhouette image of the little girl, and what a lovely memory you have of your dad. Gorgeous card Sasha!

I love this stamp, I have used it a few times, but had not thought to pair it up with the Filigree die. They set each other off beautifully.
Thanks for the inspiration :)
