This is actually a re-make of a card that I made in 2019 when I was visiting my daughter in Seoul, South Korea. I had packed a few stamping supplies so I could stamp on the long 17 hour flight, I didn’t end up doing that....those seat trays are tiny! But I did make quite… Continue reading Fine Art Floral Fun Fold
