"Yellow Rose" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Take A Word challenge was "Beautiful."

I followed my muse, which took me in an unexpected direction from what I originally imagined for this theme (beautiful woman).

The vintage images are from Old Design Shop (see the side of my blog for links). I changed the color of the rose.

The font is Honey Script Semi-Bold.

The words are from this Whittier poem:

The garden rose may richly bloom
In cultured soil and genial air,
To cloud the light of Fashion’s room
Or droop in Beauty’s midnight hair,
In lonelier grace, to sun and dew
The sweetbrier on the hillside shows
Its single leaf and fainter hue,
Untrained and wildly free, yet still a sister rose!

Whittier—The Bride of Pennacook. Pt. III. The Daughter.
