Mail Art Forever by Diana Hale

Today I received this absolutely breathtaking postcard from Diana Hale.

Medium is papercutting and size 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

I don't have to tell (you can see it on the image) the cutting is so fine and the figures are so precious and the design is so clever that this is already one of my favorite MailArt ever!

Thank you…
