The Spotted Sparrow Valentine’s Day Cards

Spotted Sparrow Valentine's Day

80′s New Wave music plays a big part in my life, so I was instantly captivated by The Spotted Sparrow’s Valentine’s Day cards, which feature lyrics from songs by ABC, Dead or Alive, The Smiths, Joy Division, and U2. The lyrics are coupled with Victorian imagery, which makes for a very fun and unexpected result.

The Spotted Sparrow is donating 15% from all sales in January and February to Partners in Health to help the Haitian relief effort, so you’ll be helping a great cause, in addition to getting great cards for Valentine’s Day.
