Another Card and Another C

Hello! Here is another flashcard greeting. This was sent to my SIL. I hope she has received it by now. The last card I sent to Colorado took 10 days. Crazy! I've been busy and having trouble getting cards done. These have gone together pretty quickly because I haven't done any stitching or added a lot of embelishment. Just trying to keep things simple.
I've added another "C" to my collection. I wish I would have taken a better picture because it is beautiful. I don't know what it is. At first I thought it was a large pillow sham, but it is not. The only place it is double thickness is around the edge. I'm not sure how I will display it. Any ideas?
I found it at the thrift store for 50 cents "as is" because there are a couple holes in it. I picked it up thinking how pretty it was and then got really excited when I realized it was a "C."
Here are some upclose shots to see the detail. If you click on the pictures you can enlarge them to see them even better. It appears to be quite old, but I don't know a lot about vintage linens. I just know that I am happy to add this one to my collection.

Very "c"-ool! That would make a lovely throw pillow. Great price for a gorgeous sham! Love your flash card-card!

Hi Vanessa - Thanks for stopping by to visit me! I think you SHOULD get you some flowers in pots! Do some container gardening in a small way. You can take them with you when you move, or leave them for a housewarming gift for the folks that buy your house! Vickie
