Heart-shaped valentine decorated with red and blue flowers, birds, and butterflies. A cameo center in the heart depicts a young girl sitting next to her dog; she is dressed in blue and white and holding a bouquet of flowers. Ivory perforated lace covers adorns the decorative paper. Text inside the card entitled, "Valentine Greetings" reads: There's nothing that I'd rather do than be with YOU,/So tell me that you'd like to be my Valentine so true. An black line image of a young boy and a young girl sitting beneath an umbrella in a field of flowers is printed above the text.
