Lace lifts up to reveal center cameo of flower arrangement with roses and forget-me-nots into which is inserted a card that reads "Truly thine." White decorative plume overlays lace and card in upper left corner with image of young women dressed in pink upon left side of embossed lace. Card opens to reveal verse entitled, "Hope" that reads: I will not write to you of love,/We've years before us yet;/But happy moments spent with you,/I shall not soon forget.
