Default Question about French Script bg

Please pardon if this has been asked before, but has anyone ever translated French Script? Any idea what it says? I've no clue. I guess my real question is, will it work for any occasion? (Birthday, get well, Sympathy). I would hate to send a card made with it to anyone who knew French, if it wasn't appropriate to the occasion. Does this make sense? Linda

From the SU website:

What is the translation of the French Script background stamp?

The words on the stamp are taken from a French poem by Victor Hugo, “Since Flowering May.” We are unable to print the English translation in its entirety because of possible copyright infringement of the translation, but you can get a sense of the mood from a few of the lines, printed below: “Since flowering May calls us from the meadows, come! . . . and let the radiance of all nature bring out, like a double blossoming flower, the beauty on your brow and the love in your heart."




Although, I'd say the translation doesn't really matter unless you were sending it someone who knew French.... ???

Good question Glitter Gal! I don't have it (yet) but I have seen so many cards made with it! We'll have to look up the poem to know for sure but from the excerpt, it looks to be pretty general and acceptable for most occasions!

I got a Thank You card from somebody recently, and they used a stamp that was similar to French Script, only it was in English. It was the Irish Blessing (I think that's what it's called...) and I loved it!! I wish we had that one, because I think it would be just as versatile.

Thank you Cindystamper for your quick answer - sounds like it's pretty general and can be (safely) used for any occasion, even if the recipient knows French.

And Erin, isn't the Irish Blessing what's on the (now retired) Script background stamp? It repeats, "May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields and, Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand."
