don't forget to take a picture

This is my fourth (but not final) week as guest designer at Dottie's World. This week Adele set the challenge 'to include two of the Charmed Download images, mix and match, resize, whatever you fancy but I need to see two images'.

I have also combined this, with this week's ABC Challenge where 'F is for flowers' - there should be flowers on your project.

This is what I came up with:
All papers are from the S.E.I. ~ Oasis collection. I have divided the card in half so that one half is a sunny beach side and the other a green tropical side. I have machine stitched the layered cardstock and have one distressed edge.
I have tried to create a film negative effect to echo the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, which reads: 'Where ever in the world you go, don't forget to take a picture'. I used Tim Holtz ~ Distress Powder.
<<<Holly on the Beach from the Holly & Madison World Tour.
And this one >>>> is Madison on Safari.

The epoxy stickers and brads are from my stash.

The flowers are a mixture of Prima & Hero Arts.

Thank you for looking.

Kat, as always this is stunning! I love how your gentle style in colouring perfectly complements the products you've used. I like how you've cut Madison away from the jungle background, I haven't tried that but it works really well.
