December Beautiful World Tour


Hello and welcome to December Flourishes Beautiful World Tour!!
Once again, it's time to get those passports ready as once again we travel the world and share inspiration by talented girls from all parts of the globe! A big thank you to everyone who traveled the globe with us last month :)

If you do a little globetrotting with us and stamp our passports (leave us a comment), you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!! The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this month's vacation spot (chosen blog) so leave a comment on each one by December 31st for your chance to win.

If you've jetted in from England from Dina's blog then you have arrived at the right destination. If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way!!

Our host this month is Naomi, and here's what she challenged the Team to:
As winter quickly approaches, here in the Great White North, the ground is starting to frost over and soon, everything will be aglisten with snow and ice.  I chose to challenge the Beautiful World girls to create something that shines like the ice we will soon be seeing.  So, cuddle up with a cup of cocoa and get ready to embark on an icy journey around this Beautiful World!

I decided to achieve the frosty look, by white embossing an image on a piece of vellum. I chose the twiggy wreath from Seasonal Wreaths set, and embellished it with some glossy red rhinestones.
The sentiment comes from the gorgeous Naturally Merry set, and was also white embossed.


I used Spellbinders Nesties for cutting all my circles. The banners were cut from scraps of patterned paper (Pink Paislee?). The cardstock is SU! Real Red.

My sketch inspiration, FMS63:


Thanks for taking time to visit me here in Australia, it's time to grab your passports and board Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is.........
