Victorian Calling Cards for Journaling, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Flowers for Friendship - Set 1 (Digital Ephemera, Instant Download)

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
Henry Ford

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.
Khalil Gibran

Two cards with illustrations that show a lady's hand extending flowers (the first is offering a clutch of pansies, the second a posy of daisies) to the recipient. These were originally used as personal calling cards in Victorian times but you can use them as gift tags, as greeting cards to reach out to someone in love and friendship or as embellishments in journaling and scrapbooking projects. You can download the high-res 4" x 6" @ 300 ppi JPEGs without watermarks here and here.

Antique Nature Illustration for Inspiration: Caged Canary Longing to be Free

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill,
of things unknown, but longed for still,
and his tune is heard on the distant hill,
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Now that she had nothing to lose, she was free.
Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
