Fun with flowers card

The other night at club we played with this Pawsitivily Prints paper and I just love how "happy" the paper seems. It just says "happy" to me. Anyway, I wanted to make a card with it, and to me happy is also flowers. So, I saw a card similar to this once and thought it would be the perfect card to make. I made 2 and turned one on it's side for fun.
To make the flowers you just punch out 3 flowers and squirt them with some water and scrunch them up. Below is one flower wet and scrunched, and the other one dry.
You let them dry a little and then layer them for your flower. I used a button with some 1/8" satin ribbon through the holes of the button for an embellishment. To adhere the flower I used Crystal Effects, but you could use a glue dot or stampin dimensional.
Underneath the flower, I punched out some DSP from the Decorative Punch label and then cut the label in half. I also sponged some Tempting Turquoise around the edges too.
No sentiment on the outside of this card. That makes it nice when I go to give the card, I can add the sentiment inside.

Thanks for peeking in today.

Have a wonderful day.
