This month the hostess is Anne-Elise and our theme is Remembering our Friends! 

 

 


Hello!  I am Betty Wright!  Welcome to the United States of America!   I live in the state of North Carolina!   For my card I am using Flourishes Medallion Motif, From the Heart, and Tiny Flowers and Tags stamp sets.  I am using Flourishes Classic White card stock.  I stamped the medallion motif with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collections  in Evergreen.

I die cut the medallion motif with Spellbinder's Label 22.  For the center I used Spellbinder's Beaded circles die.  I then used two smaller Spellbinder's Circles for the dotted frame that comes in the Medallion Motif set as well as one for the Miss You sentiment that also comes in this set.  For the sentiment circle I also used the tiny leafy image from the Tiny Flowers and Tags set.  I just stamped it over and over til circle was full.  The background was stamped using the small flourished image in the From the Heart set.  I stamped it to some avocado paper using Memento tuxedo black in as well.  The edges of all the white and avocado papers was ink distressed with Ranger Brushed Corduroy ink.  I finished with a cream seam binding bow topped with a flourished gold button from from stash. 

I hope you've enjoyed your visit in America!   The next stop on your Beautiful World Tour is....

 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your Beautiful World Tour! 

Betty
