Flourishes - May Beautiful World Tour - A Picture Says A Thousand Words

Hello everyone! It's the first Monday in May and time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour. Once again we invite you to travel the world with us for the chance of winning a FREE Flourishes Stamp Set!!! But please remember, that to be in with a chance of winning you will need to leave a comment on every designers blog by 31st May.
If you arrived here from Meredith's blog in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, then you're in the right place. If not then you will need to start your travels back at the Flourishes blog in sunny Florida.
This month Kathy is our hostess, and she has asked us to use an image and no sentiment, and to give our reason for why we chose that particular image.
If you know me you will be aware of my love of flowers.  For my image I chose the beautiful blossoms from the new 'Garden Gate' set of stamps. I chose this image as the blossoms signify the arrival of our long awaited Springtime here in the UK.  I just love to see the trees bursting with blossom at this time of year.
I embossed my background and also used Spellbinders. I coloured my image with markers and I sponged with spun sugar distress ink. I then added a fussy white and silver bow.
Thank you for visiting me today. Your next destination is Kathy in Australia

Oh my goodness, Sasha...I think my jaw just dropped! This is quite the STUNNER! Love the beautiful spellbinders layers, the gorgeous image (which is beautifully coloured), and the crisp white on white colour scheme.
