Yay... St. Valentine's Day is coming up. Not many people know that there are many many St. Valentines but the original for which the day was so named was sent to Rome to renounce his faith and when he refused he was beaten and beheaded (on the 14th of course) Yikes! He is known as the patron saint of happy marriages and young people not because of anything special but because people were worshiping an idol who was celebrated on the 15th of February. So to get peoples mind away from that, early church fathers sent out propaganda about St. Valentine so people would stop thinking about these idols. Interesting. Now on to happier matters. CARDS!!!
This I made as an anniversary card but is a nice Valentine's Day card as well. Not in the typical red and pink which I like. This card is made with a stampin' up stamp and watercolored to perfection! Just kidding! This card is entered in THIS CHALLENGE!
