July Flourishes Beautiful World Tour



Hello and welcome to this month's Beautiful World Tour showcasing some fabulous creations by the BWT Design Team from around the world!
 I'm your last stop on the tour here in Belfast, Northern Ireland,
so if you've stumbled across the hop and want to join in from the beginning head back
to the Flourishes blog so you don't miss anything!
If you've arrived from Anne-Elise's wonderful blog, you're right on track!
Did you know you have a chance to win a fabulous Flourishes stamp set - all you have to do is leave a comment on each designers blog by the last day of the month!

This month our hostess is Sasha and our theme is
CITRUS!
I went with pink grapefruit and and lime shades, with touches of
zesty lemon yellow and sweet citrus orange!
I coloured the beautiful flower wreath from Flourishes Mother's Words of Wisdom with copics, cut it out and popped it up against a stitched designer paper background.
The dp is Cherry Blossoms - Gingham and Strawberry Social - Plaid from Nitwit Collections
The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink on vellum and I used My Favorite Things Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut the banner.
To make the banner with a double ended fishtail, I simply put the cut banner back in the die upside down, carefully measuring the ends so that it would be even, and ran it back through the Cuttlebug.
I curled the ends up using a rounded pencil and gave it some dimension,
 before adding some pink grapefruit coloured brads.
 Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for joining us today and for stopping by Belfast on your World Tour!
 I hope you've been inspired, have a wonderful day!
