Surprise in the mail

Just when I thought I had received all the postcards from ihanna's annual swap, I get a surprise.  One last, late card.  Awesome,  surprise.  Maybe there is another out there,  obviously I had miscounted. This is a beautiful card from Angela in Virginia.  You can see her process at Making Mayhem blog.
