Three cherubs play on a grassy area in front of a tent. They are wearing robes that are fixed over one shoulder. Two stand and shoot arrows at flying, winged hearts. The third sits and watches. Trees, buildings, and rocky mountains are in the background. The borders of the card are perforated, mimicking lace.
