June Beautiful World Tour!

Hey there, and welcome to Flourishes' June Beautiful World Tour!

My's hard to believe that 2013 is almost halfway through!

If you have arrived from Bridget's blog , then you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

One lucky winner is chosen from the comments each month to WIN their choice of Flourishes stamp set.  All you need to do is follow the hop and leave comments along the way.  You do not need to comment on every stop, however, the more you comment on, the bigger your chance of winning!

Well, today, Meredith challenged us girls to create something using neutrals and texture.

Here's what I came up with:
I don't know how well I did with adding lots of texture to my card but, I did keep with the neutral colour scheme.

With Father's Day fast approaching, here in Canada and the US, I decided to make a card for my dad who is an avid fisherman.

I used Flourishes' What a Catch! stamp set which not only has beautiful masculine fishing related images, but, also has some adorable pun-ny sentiments to go with them!

I kept the card pretty simple, using papers from Bo Bunny and adding only a bit of burlap and some twine for texture and embellishment.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your stop in Vancouver, Canada.

Your next stop is...

Happy Stamping!

You don't know how well you did? Honey, this card is awesome. I don't usually like burlap but it's great on this card! Don't forget that texture can be added through coloring and your background paper does just that. The layers are just right. This is such a great man card.


What a beautiful card!


My first thought was MIPS dad would have no idea what that sentiment means, lol.
Love the masculine card, just perfect!
