A Note to Say 'Thank You'

I made the tag on this card along with another one a while ago and used it on this vintage style card for my beautiful sis-in-law, Helen. She is so tenderly taking care of my mother-in-law who is pretty poorly at the moment.  It was just to say 'thank you' to a very special person. 

Thank you, Hels, we love you.

I've just added a couple of corner flourishes to the card by Memory Box.  The main image is from Clarity Stamps and coloured with Promarkers.  The background is from a gorgeous large Stamp from Just Rite called Vintage Travel Map and the note is from a really useful set of vintage style stamps from Hunkydory.

I would like to enter this card into the following:

Lovely card Jennie and I'm sure your Sister-in-Law really appreciates the thought. The image you've used definitely hints at a bygone era, and I love the "map" stamp. Thanks for sharing this card at The Crafty Pad this week in our "Anything Goes" challenge.
