December Beautiful World Tour.

Beautiful World Graphic

Hello Beautiful World! Naomi is our hostess this month and she chose to challenge us to create something that shines like ice and glass! So cuddle up with a cup of cocoa and get ready to embark around this beautiful world!

Did you know that your travels around the Flourishes World gives you the opportunity to WIN a free FLOURISHES STAMP SET?? All we ask is that you leave a comment on each one by December 31st for your chance to win!

If you've jetted in from Meredith'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 all the beautiful inspiration along the way!

For my card I chose the beautiful stamp of the Christmas Candles set of Flourishes. I colored it and then added some glossy accents to make it look like glass. I also put some tiny red glass beads on the decoration around the candle.  The bow is made with some cream seam binding. The sentiment on the tag is from the retiring set Alleluia Angel. The layers are made with the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two and the Floral Ovals dies. The doily is made with the Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry die. One of the background is made with the retired Damask Background stamp of Flourishes. I clear embossed it. The other background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The poinsettia is made with the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia dies. I stitched the edges, added some ribbons, lace, twine, a red button and two cute little bells to finish it off.





We have snow in Finland now and this morning the weather is very cold, -23 degrees Celsius (-9,4 degrees Fahrenheit)! It's time to put wood in the chimney and light candles!

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

    Brrrr. so cold over there where you live, but gues what? At this very moment it's snowing over here in Holland, temps. about 0° C. So not so cold as in Finland, but for the Dutch it's real winter! Beautiful cardmaking weather!
