The placement on this card might seem a bit odd, but I love it. There's a stable base to the bottom of the design. Good friendships ground us, don't they? But they also lift us up and help us breathe. All the soaring white space above the lotus made me think of that. The symbolism of the design works so well with the sentiment.
Yes, I'm a weird English major.
But that green lotus is darling, isn't it?
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
