Sunday Postcard - Botanical


Thanks for the challenge and for the lovely sample postcard.
I have attempted to achieve an aged look.
Background, postage stamp and postmarks are by Katie Pertiet. Aged overlays are by Madame Mim.
The dictionary page and dark blue flowers are from my "stash".
ENLARGE FOR MORE DETAIL.
