This most beautifully layered--textured-trash poetic card arrived in Greece today from Torma Cauli.
There are many layers of "stars and stripes" it seems.
And a softer textured material in Greek blue and white.

"with Love" from Angie and Snooky. Very vintage and very nice!
The colors and textures are just fantastic with the Grape soda cap!!
