Lao Tzu - Cards in Envy Sketch #3

The Cards in Envy blog presents the challenge to create cards that can fit inside a standard envelope without any extra postage -no bumps from buttons/bows/bling.   It's a worthy goal when you can't hand deliver a card.  It also makes perfect cards to donate to Operation Write Home. 

For this card I used stamps from a Wordsworth Remembering set called Life Affirmation.  It's a set I purchased a few years ago, and am finally playing with it!  I used Topiary, Black, and White Daisy card stock and inks from Close To My Heart, and water brushed the lotus bud.
