This adorable winged cupid is greeting the morning from his heart-shaped window. His brick home is enhanced by blue Forget-Me-Nots growing beneath his window. Cupid is holding a string of golden hearts, the shutters have heart cut-outs, and there are two hearts joined by a golden arrow above the window. The sentiment is: "St. Valentine's Message. Cupid Promised his aid to-day, Will for me intercede,Send him not thoughtlessly away. To make my fond heart bleed." This card is fully embossed.
