Today I so was the luckiest girl in the whole world!! This card also came from my dear Sergio!! Thank you a million times!! This is my first card from Suriname and although it is painted, I think it is just gorgeous!!
Suriname (or Surinam), officially known as the Republic of Suriname, is a country in northern South America. It is bordered by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west, Brazil to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the north. Suriname was colonized by the English and the Dutch in the 17th century. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who then governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana until 1954, when it became one of the constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The country of Suriname achieved independence from the Kingdom of the Netherlands on 25 November 1975. Suriname, the Netherlands Antilles (until its dissolution in 2010) and the Netherlands itself have cooperated on a basis of equality since 1954. It is also a member of CARICOM and is considered as a Caribbean country that is not an island.
