Beautiful old bridge in Florence

I am playing with Black with Two, this time is to use black cardstock with teal + strings



In the background, the beautiful old bridge PONTO VECCHIO in Florence, Italy


this Medieval bridge over the Arno River in Florence is so beautiful that during world war two, was not destroyed by Germans during their retreat in 1944, unlike all other bridges in Florence, this was allegedly because of an express order by Hitler.


I love Florence, so crazy in love with Ponte Vecchio that I've been there 3 times within a year. Crazy huh?


   hop over to Black with two, a fun challenge blog with beautiful DT's work on display, what you waiting for?

Beautiful page, Kirsty! I would have never thought to use black. This idea would also make a great Father's day card. Sylvia
