One red rose Valentine card by Celeste Mookherjee

A single red rose is one of nature’s most beautiful gifts. It is also a symbol of love and devotion and thus perfect for a Valentine offering of love.

    A very attractive painted look – as opposed to ‘painterly’. The pale grey background makes the red sing.

  • Thank you very much for the wonderful comment, Bette!

    Beautiful creation, Celeste. Lovely layout, very effective choice of font and such a gorgeous symbol of love. Simply stunning.!

  • Bev, thank you for the lovely compliment! As for the layout, everything had to serve the rose. I love fonts and knew this one would be really good for greeting cards when I saw it featured in the newsletter I receive from every month.

    You couldn’t have found a more perfect rose for this incredibly beautiful card, Celeste! The color, lighting, and shape and position of the petals and sepals are amazing, and the texture and writing complement the rose perfectly.

  • Thank you, Anita, for such a wonderful compliment! The rose turned out to be perfectly suited for a card.
