Vintage Thank You Card

The County Fair is over and gone and my ribbons are stowed away in my memory box.  This means it is time to share my cards and tell you how to make them!  Today’s card is a vintage thank you card.  As cute as this one is, I didn’t win anything on it– go figure.  Its a rough, rough world in the county-fair judging.  And, of course– this could easily be made into a birthday card or thinking of you card.  Hope you enjoy this one!
