Memories are treasures ...

...that time cannot destroy

This card is based on the sketch for Atlantic 275:

I altered an envelope, using half of the outside and half of the inside (from one of the boxed sets I bought from TK Maxx), mounting the silver printed quote and flowers with pearls from The Works. The sentiment stamp at the top is by Dovecraft, inked with Stazon jet black.

This is also for:

Monochrme magic 13: monochrome
Crafty calendar August: dots and/or stripes
Dragonfly journeys 124: flower power
Krafin Kimmie 442: pearls
Incy wincy: ribbon and/or lace (the flowers)
Lost coast: anything goes
Lil patch of crafty friends 87: anything goes
4 crafty chicks 414: anything goes
Cute card Thursday 541: anything goes
A bit more time to craft 73: anything goes
Daisy chain 22: anything goes
