When a card gets this worked over, it forms its own gravity. I love the markings across the card, which remind me of trails left by motor boats. Also effective are the waves and fringes cut on the edges. The purple thread was interesting touch as well. This is a card from a postcrosser in St. Petersburg. The Vasilyevsky Island, is an island in St Petersburg, bordered by the Bolshaya Neva and Malaya Neva rivers.
