Strawberry Lotus Thanks

It's the second day of Sale-a-Bration, so here's another Sale-a-Bration idea for you.  How fitting that it's also a thank you card.  That reminds me that I should send out another note of gratitude to someone.  I made this card to use as a sample for the next few months, so I guess I need to go do more stamping so I have some cards to give away.  Hmmm, it's nap time right now, so should I clean my cluttered house or go stamp, hard decision!

Years ago I fell in love with Stampin' Up!'s 2-step Stampin' sets.  Just by stamping some coordinating images (made to layer or combine with each other), you get a beautiful detailed image with very little effort.  Well, the Lotus Blossom set (another Sale-a-Bration set you can earn for FREE) feels like a blast from the past, but it is actually a 3-step stamp!  This set wasn't a must-have at first glance in the Sale-a-Bration brochure, but as soon as I saw it stamped I quickly changed my mind.  I chose Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush as my blossom colors, and then added Wild Wasabi for the stem.  I textured the background with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder to give the card the elegant feel that the blossom hints at.  Hope you enjoy!
