Roses are red, Violets are blue

I think my first exposure to poetry was when we recited those Roses are Red poems in elementary school. You remember, “…violets are blue, sugar is sweet and so are you!” I loved those cute poems.  I wonder if kids are still reciting those verses today? This card was inspired by the Penny Black stamp with the “Roses are Red” sentiment that I stamped and matted for the inside of the card. The stamp on the front  is called “A Rose”.  I used my staple supplies: pretty cardstock, black ink, Copic markers, sheer ribbon, and a little Stickles on the lace of her dress to give it a little sparkle.

For those of you who remember those verses from long ago, here are a couple of them that I remember and used to love!

Roses are red;
Your eyes are blue.
When I’m smiling,
I’m thinking of you.

Roses are red;
Chocolate is sweet.
I want you to know
That I think you’re neat.
