Free Chart for Valentines Day

I know that I already have a Valentine booklet out, but had such a hard time resisting yet another idea for that sentimental holiday which will be arriving soon. Not inspired by a sampler this time, but rather by a Victorian era postcard.

I am a bit of a sucker for old fonts, so I thought I would try my hand at reproducing the lettering...

The original was printed with a soft red, matte gold, and summer-skies blue. I envision it looking something like this:

Enjoy! And as always, will you please share photos of your finishes with me? I love seeing what you do with my designs.
