A Postcard

Helllo to you all, we have a special post over at Country View Challenges where some of the DT have made something to do with Postcards it is for our Magpie Day....

I have made a vintage postcard sent from a wife to her husband who is fighting in the war.....
I started with a piece of cream cardstock cut down to A6 size,I distressed this with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks,I then stamped various postcard images and finally stamped the rose and coloured this with distress inks . I frayed some burlap and tied this around.xxx
