Sizzix -blue flowers

Dear bloggers,

Here is my card to show you which is part of the same order I mentioned in the previous post. The Sizzix wild flowers you see here have been die cut with water colour paper. The same paper was smooshed around using Camlin brush markers from India. The base paper has been embossed and I tied a ribbon around it which says it all. I sprayed water on the cardstock I was going to emboss as per a tutorial on You Tube thinking this rather flat embossing folder would become more prominent. 

Now to some good news - I have begun hosting meditation sessions for parents in my younger one's school. Today was the second session and I feel it went well. Ah, the joys of spreading the word of meditation are indescribable in words. I also run a small initiative called United World Sanctuary which is a platform for peace and goodwill. We meditate, listen to a talk on a positive topic and eat nourishing food. It is basically a mini retreat for the mind, body and soul.

I will participate in the following challenges: - flowery and delicate
Arty Divas - anything goes - handmade/stamped flowers

Happy card making,

Beautiful textures and colors, Monica! It's a lovely card! So happy for your success in pursuing what is important to you. A great way of teaching young people to look beyond what the senses tell them, and to quieten themselves. Congratulations! hugs, de
