Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - English Rose


Hello dear friends and followers. Sorry for my lack of blogging this past week, we took a short break.
 Today, being the first Monday in August, it's time for another Beautiful World Tour. If you're on track, you should have arrived here from Bridget's blog in beautiful Northern Ireland...but if you get lost along your way you can start your hop back at the Flourishes blog in Florida.
By joining in with our tour you get the chance to see some of the beautiful Flourishes stamps used by the designers, and by leaving a comment on each designers blog by 31st August, you get the chance to win a FREE Flourishes stamp set!!! 
This month Naomi is our lovely hostess and she has asked us to create something with the flower that represents our country.  For me it had to be the English Rose, and I chose a lovely pink one within a sweet bouquet...
My image is from Flourishes 'Roses are Red' collection of stamps.  I did use this stamp before for a red rose, here...so this time I chose pink! I coloured my image with markers and I also used some dimensional paint for my viola centres and berries. I inked the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink.
My sentiment is from Flourishes 'Old Tea Rose' collection. 
I used quite a few layers, created with dies and some embossing. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
Thank you for stopping by! Your next stop along the way is Naomi's blog in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
