Riveting Thank You Card

I’ve been looking at Library of Congress images recently for inspiration, and tonight’s slightly silly card came directly from a 1942 photo from an Navy airplane manufacturing plant. The Library of Congress explains the image shown:

Mrs. Virginia Davis, a riveter in the assembly and repair department of the Naval air base, supervises Chas. Potter, a NYA trainee from Michigan, Corpus Christi, Texas. After eight weeks of training he will go into civil service. Should he be inducted or enlist in the armed service, he will be valuable to mechanized units of the Army or Navy

The photo is the basis for this thank you card, which uses paper from the Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper:
