Here's my inspiration!

Years ago, I was lucky enough to visit Italy with my sister who was stationed in Germany.
We got to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa, ride in a gondola in Venice, and see the Colosseum in Rome. So I made this card to send to my sister. I thought it would be fun to "frame" each attraction and send this to my sister!
