Sadness flies away...

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card I created for the Kreaxions blog using the Kreaxions Lotus punch (#603)To create the flowers I used on the card, I punched a handful of Lotus flowers from cardstock. Next you need to spritz them with water. Let them sit for a few seconds and then scrunch them up. Allow them to dry. When they are dry, smooth them out a bit and layer 3-4 flowers together, adhering them in the centers with wet adhesive. The result is gorgeous handmade flowers that only took minutes to make. 

I used Skipping Stone Designs Timeless Textures to create the background pattern paper. I stamped it in Citrine ColorBox Petal Point ink and embossed it with Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
