"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. :)
