Cupid's Arrow


This is my Valentines entry for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge (Cupid). I'm not a huge romantic but I went with a classic design here with multi layers of background and artistic brushes. Cupid image is from (Dover) , hearts (Christine Adolph) and stamps (scrappy chic). I wanted to create an old Italian Renaissance feel to this postcard . Happy Valentines Day!
