Stationery of the Week at Penpal of the Week Blog #2

You will probably regularly see these posts on my blog. I love this stationery of the week feature on Julie's Pen Pal of the Week blog! What a good excuse to buy more stationery because this particular design will only be available for a week. ;-) I really like this Marie Antoinette design because I'm a history lover. I especially love the 18th century. <3
