I sure hope Babbetto liks this, I think there might be something off about it, maybe the white in the background, maybe I should make it a little darker, what do you think?

Cool!  Good thing for you the distress ink makes it look grubby anyway, so your grubby little hands won't leave any fingerprints  Wink

I love it.  It hints at so many stories -- what happened the man? who's the woman? what does the letter say?  I love the way you folded the picture.

Thanks guys, as you can see, my avatar does warn you that I am a doom merchant.  But hey, at least I'm classy about it!

Beautiful card, Crafty! Babbetto is a lucky gal.
I particularly like the woman in the pendant. Its like its been in his pocket for a long time and is a little worn from that. It says a lot.

Thanks, I wanted it to seem like his loved one was getting an envelope of his personal effects, sad I know, but a great story.  I like to think it got to her, but many years later, like he gave it to a fellow soldier to give to her and it was finally retuned.

Thanks, I like thinking up stories like that when I make ATC's or collages with ephemera.
