Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - White As Snow!


Good morning everyone!
It's the first Monday in December and time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour! So grab yourself a cup of your favourite beverage and join in with us as we travel the world.
If you're on track you should have arrived here from Bridget's blog in Northern Ireland, but should you get lost along your travels just hop on back to the beginning - Flourishes blog in Florida.
By joining in with our tour you will be in with the chance of winning a FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!! All you need to do is leave a comment on each designers blog by 31st December.
This month Meredith is our hostess, and she has asked us to create something 'White As Snow'.  Anyone following my blog will know that I love white on white cards.....so that is what I decided to create.....
As you can see I used several Spellbinders layers.  I then stamped my holly image with Bundled Sage distress ink using Flourishes 'Naturally Merry' stamp set. I stamped the image again, fussy cut, glittered, then layered it to give some dimension. For my berries I used enamel accents.
I stamped 'Joy' onto a Spellbinders label die using a stamp from the beautiful 'Poinsettia & Pine' set of stamps. I then tied this onto an organza ribbon bow, along with two silver bells.
For my insert I stamped randomly around the edges with the holly and then stamped the 'Merry Christmas'. Both stamps are from the 'Naturally Merry' stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Your next stop along the way is Iwona's blog in Australia.....
