February Beautiful World Tour!

Hello Beautiful World Tourers and welcome to Australia!!!  I hope you've had a wonderful, creative journey around the Flourishes World and this is your last destination on the tour!  Today we've been thrilled to announce our latest team member Aleksandra who hails from beautiful Slovenia and I'm sure you've loved her project today!!  :)  If you've missed the tour, you can start back at the Flourishes Blog in Florida so you don't miss any of the beautiful inspiration along the way!!  Don't forget that you can WIN a free stamp set simply by commenting on the blogs this month!!

This month our hostess is Iwona and our talented friend has given us a beautiful sketch as our challenge for the month!!
Isn't it gorgeous?!  Such a fun sketch to play with - thanks Iwona!!!  :)

I've used a base of pink bazzill and layered with Very Vanilla.  Next is a layer of MME Lavender DP.  Along the top I've added a panel of more MME Lavender DP and across the middle is a piece of Old Olive that has been cut with Spellbinders Basic Lattice Shapeabilities.  At the bottom of the lattice I've attached a piece of ivory satin ribbon and then stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Favorites in the bottom corner.  The roses are from A Year In Flowers 2 and have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black coloured with Copics (Candy Pink Collection, Pistachio Collection, Black Cherry Collection).  I've fussy cut it and popped it up on foam tape over a circle of Lavender DP (Small Circle Nestabilities) and some pink bazzill cut with Spellbinders Splendid Circles.  To finish I've added a bow to the ribbon.  :)

Stamps - A Year in Flowers 2, Sentimental Favorites (Flourishes)
Paper - Pink Bazzill, Very Vanilla, Blending Card, MME Lavender DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
