Vintage Christmas Greetings

This undated Christmas card was among the items belonging to Marion Louise Moran.  I don't know if it was sent to Louise or if she was the recipient.  Someone has written "lougie" on the inside, was that a nickname for Louise?

The interior has some cute artwork.  Originally there were three ribbons that at one time would've been the belt of the dresses and tied in bows.  One of the ribbons is missing. At first I thought it might have been based on the Three Little Maids Are We but down in the corner it says "Five Little Bills".  Some research did result in finding a children's book written in 1910 called The Dream Adventures of Little Bill.  Perhaps that was the inspiration for this piece.
