Nice one, and captures the Gibson frilliness well. In fact the card looks a bit rococo to me, and it's surprising how much the Edwardian era ladies were trying to imitate that era. Like I did a post at http://georgianaduchessofdevonshire.blogspot.com/2012/01/guest-post-tahlia-felix-talks-poufs-and.html that was all about the hairstyles and how similar they ultimately were.
Anyway, I'd totally buy a card like that one. I once read an old book about ladies who worked as professional card makers in the 50s, gluing on ribbons and things. Too bad one so rarely finds such nice cards now!
