Bloomin' Love Notes

Today I'm going to be sharing a fun little love note that can be tucked into a card, box of candy, tied to a stuffed animal or just handed to the one you love.

I will be using Adirondack Pigment Inks but you could use whatever inks you have on hand as long as they coordinate well together. I love using the Adirondack inks because there is no thinking always know which colors match perfectly!
