This embroidered envelope bears a ‘POSTAGE STAMP’ FROM ETERNITY that shows the image of TWO HEARTS embellished with TINY PEARLS. The postmaster has used an ‘INK STAMP’ that shows your envelope was mailed on FEB 14 from HEARTLAND with the message “BE MINE”. It seems that your envelope was addressed with a FOUNTAIN PEN (over-dyed thread) and gently kissed with RED RAYON LIPS before being sent “PAR EROS”. As you can see in this little thumbnail picture, you then sealed your envelope with a RED GLASS HEART and a RED RIBBON
