This card looks great! A flag that looks like it is flying as opposed to being flat always has so much strength to it. I was kind of surprised when this arrived that I did not already have a Russian flag in my collection. Happy then that Svetlana from Moscow sent this. She wrote me that it was very cold but no snow, therefore no skiing. Here we have it all - snow, skiing and too darn cold -25 with windchill as I write this. Yikes! Great stamps too. not to sure if I have seen this series before.
