Back after a break...

Hey All,
I am back along with my mojo after a gap of 5 long days. Long..because I was on bed rest after a small surgery..Anyways.. I am feeling much much better and completed a half left project today.
This card was initially meant for Anita's Challenge at Kavi's Anniversary celebrations. But missed the deadline due to my health issues. Hence I would be submitting this for Anita's Friendship Challenge. And I dedicate this card to Khushboo my newest blogger friend.
The flowers are handmade following Anita's tutorial. Thanks so much Anita for the wonderful tutorial! The flowers look like real ones and I am going to experiment more with it.
Here's a closer look at the flowers-

An year back, I had got some handmade papers from Singapore which were very thin and I thought were useless. But I was mistaken. These papers are just perfect for making these flowers. The pattern paper is from Paper Mania and butterfly is stamped on parchment paper with black ink, clear embossed and coloured on back side using water colours. (As I am at my mom's place and I didn't have my markers with me). The sentiment is MICIA stamp and the circle punch is from Fiskars.

I also wanted to flaunt my prize for winning Karuna's Just heat embossing challenge. Thank you so much girl! Super loved it :) .
 Now that my mojo is back..I'll be soon experimenting with the embossing pen :)
