Give Thanks - Flourishes Beautiful World Tour...

Hello friends!

Somehow, October has landed on us, and it's time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour! Usually I am sort of sad when the autumn weather hits, but this year we've had such a wonderful, long summer, and mild winter, I am actually really enjoying it.

If you've landed here from Bridget's blog, you're on the right track. If you've happened here by chance, you might want to head over to the Flourishes Blog to start at the beginning. And remember - your trip around the world can win you some free stamps! Just comment on all the designers' blogs as you go - you never know where the random winner will be drawn from!


This month, we are hosted by the amazing Dina, who has challenged us to create to something monochromatic. More times than not, this inspires me to create an all-white card, so I thought it was time to do something different.


Since we're heading into Canadian Thanksgiving, I was inspired to create something fall-themed, and thankful. 

I used the newer Autumn Blessings set for my card, stamped it in brown ink, and took it from there, keeping things pretty neutral.


Lots of earth tones to keep things fairly monochromatic. I realize I took some creative license with the monochrome theme, but I still say it passes! I kept my colouring fairly loose, inspired by Chupa's card from last month's hop. Some shimmer spray splattered over the card finished it off for me.

That's what I have for you this month... don't forget to leave me a comment before you set off for your next destination, Finland!
