|The "Sakura Panel" is part of the Spring Mail Piece. It|
features a quote by Rainer Maria Rilke.
|The USPS provided the|
stamp design element.
Love: Pansies in a Basket stamp, and its design is taken from Hallmark Cards, Inc's all-time best-selling greeting card. The card was created from a watercolor by Dorothy Maienschein; Derry Noyes designed the stamp. The quotation and poem came from the "Quote Garden" website (if you like them, there are plenty more on the site!).
|Inside of the Spring Mail Piece a pop-up section accents Persephone's flowery|
Greek meadow. This Mail Piece features the Persephone myth as part of its
spring seasonal theme.
