Bright as flowers be thy life's fair hours

This chromolithograph image is on embossed paper and is glued to a die-cut card slightly thicker and slightly smaller than a modern business card. The heading of this entry may be read using a magnifying glass. It is printed on the blue label beneath the heart-shaped box of candy being proffered by the hand at the end of a yellow-sleeved, white-cuffed arm. The acompanyment comprises two doves, roses, and forget-me-nots. This is from between the pages of a Geburtstagbuch or birthday book that has pages not much larger than this card. This is part of the scan-o-rama series of entries.
