You’re In My Thoughts

Lotus Blossoms Made Me Think of You! I think I have Lotus Blossom Fever. Is there such an illness? I’m seriously having so much fun trying different color combinations with this three-step stamp! I don’t know why it took me soooo long to ink up this stamp from Sale-a-Bration 2015! To create this card: The card base is So Saffron cardstock, 4-1/2″ x 11″, folded in half.
