Roses are Red

by Erika Taylor

Victorian images and vintage creations are so amazing. They truly bring you to a place filled with wonder and beauty. When I first laid eyes on the Fancy Pants Vintage Valentines paper line, I immediate fell head over heels for it. The colors are soft yet striking, and the images and patterns can be used in so much more than a Valentines craft. Today I’m sharing with you a little piece of the past with a card using these wonderful papers.
