Thank You card for OWH Midweek Throwdown

The Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home is to make thank you cards for our heroes to send home to their loved ones. The challenge is in appreciation of Dixie, who recently retired as our East Coast shipper! Yay, Dixie!
I went with my favorite vintage style for my thank you card:

The dress form image is DP from My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found" 6x6 DP Pad. The small rectangle DP piece is from Cosmo Cricket "Odds & Ends". Sorry, I don't have the name/maker of the background DP. The lace trim & button are from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is done in an alphabet set I recently got from Inspired Stamps. I really like the font. I double stamped it, first in SU Crumb Cake and then Memento Black on top.
Thanks for visiting!

Great card Sherry. Nice job combining image, paper and embellishments. You always do "vintage" so well! Happy New Year!

Sherry, I love this one. More and more vintage is becoming a fav of mine, but I really have to work at perfecting it. Sometimes my "antique finish" just looks dirty. I'll keep trying though. I love your image and that button looks so sweet (like one from my grandmother's button jar). All around beautiful card.

Hi Sherry, your card is lovely! I too like the lace ribbon with the button. I also like the dress form image and the way it is incorporated into the card.
