Wild Roses

With Valentine’s Day almost upon us we couldn't miss out on giving you another amazing botanical set for the season, Wild Roses. This stunning set features a wild rose and a theme of "love" - perfect to tell those you cherish just how you feel - all year long! This set, illustrated by Sam Pickard with sentiments provided by Dina Kowal, measures 4" by 6" and offers three main images, three sentiments and a sentiment background stamp. Today you’ll see some fragrant beauties from our Senior Design Team with this love-themed set, and while you’re enjoying their designs


I absolutely adore Sam's images.  They are a little taller which works great for tags, but will still work great on a card. This Wild Rose is beautiful.  I was inspired to use the colors for the petals by a photo I found HERE.  The plum and peach really caught my eye.  When I sit down to color, I always Google some images, and search around until I see something that inspires me.
