SHE - Flash Card sketch

Got together with my good friend Kim yesterday for gabbing/shopping (the things we do best) and she gifted me with some fabulous ephemera including some vintage LONG flashcards.  A simple sketch with pencil/ink seemed just the thing to illustrate the word SHE.
The one on top is the original size of the card.  I couldn't bear to waste the "she" on the other side so I trimmed it down and rounded the corners and now have a smaller salvaged piece to use later.  Kim gave me the lecture that ephemera is to use and not to hoard so maybe I'll use the entire card next time - seems rather decadent though. . .
