"The forward violet..."

                                       "The forward violet thus I did chide-
                                     Sweet thief, whence didst thou steal thy sweet that smells
                                       If not from my love's breath?" 
                                                                                  William Shakespeare, Sonnet 99   

With Flourishes' January release this week, they are sponsoring a  challenge to create a card focusing on love and /or letters. Violets symbolize faithfulness and were often given as tokens of love, so I chose  the violets from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates Vol.1 for the focal point of a Valentine's Day card.

Seriously, you know me; I jump at any chance to use my violet stamps. :)

Wishing you a week filled with promise as violets in January,
