birthday card

A birthday or greeting card made from cream paper embossed with a floral border and a lace design, which has an oval cut out in the centre. Through this, an image placed behind can be seen. This depicts a rural scene of a river, trees and distant hills. There is a small pencil mark in the right hand corner on the inside, which is illegible.
