Old-Fashioned Valentine

     I chose an image from a 1947 Valentine for this card. I used some old Artyliscious and Prima Marketing pattern papers from my stash. I got the lace with pink ribbon insert from a garage sale. The button comes from a button basket at a machine embroidery place that I pop in to every once in a while just to see if they have new buttons in the button basket. They sell them 50 cents for a 2 x 4 bag full. Can't hardly beat that . I made the flower myself - another Prima Marketing paper. The sentiment was taken directly from that antique Valentine. And of course, I had to add some pearls and a paper heart doily. You absolutely can not have an old-fashioned Valentine without a paper doily!!!
