Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - Summer Citrus Colours

Hello my lovely friends and followers! I do hope you are all well. Sorry for my lack of blogging....I will reveal why I have been absent in a later post and catch up with you all.
Today is the first Monday in July, and it's time for another globe trotting trip on the Beautiful World Tour. You should have arrived here from Aleksandra's blog, but if you didn't and you would like to join in you will need to start your tour back at the Flourishes blog in Florida. By visiting every designers blog on the tour, and leaving a comment, you will be in with the chance of winning a FREE Flourishes stamp set!!!
This month it was my turn to host the challenge. I love citrus colours, so I challenged the BW team to create something using these lovely bright and juicy summer colours.
Here is the card I created...
I used Spellbinders dies, which I embossed and also used the letterpress technique on some of them. I coloured them with distress inks and chalks.
My image is from the beautiful Flourishes 'With Gratitude' set of stamps, coloured with distress inks and markers. My sentiment is from Flourishes 'Tulips for Friends' set of stamps.
Thank you for visiting me today.  Your next stop on the tour is Naomi's blog in beautiful British Columbia Canada...
