Card and Envelope

Card Sketch #105
     I just received these Lili of the Valley Trio stamps, which are perfect for this sketch. They are called "Vintage Motor Trio". The rear end of an old jalopy on the envelope is an old die of Tim Holtz. I used the front end on the inside of the card. The little black polka dots on the front of the card, fell out of the large gear and onto the card. Happy accident!!!
