vintage valentine for Theme Thursday


I made it as a postcard, but I also put some old eyelet lace stuff around the edges, because what is a Valentine without the frills? . It is on a painted background that I got from Elizabeth at "last door down the hall". I dont have the greatest printer so I added my own paint and things to brighten it up, then I added to that. Now that I look at it, I think I like it better without the edging...mmmmm, I may have to go pull it off. I may just sleep on this one...Thanks for stopping by!
