BRIER ROSE, Say it with Flowers Collection

I have been so busy on last days and I have had little time to work on my cards. I am so sorry, because it is an activity that I really love. So far my collection has 10 designs. Today I will show the Brier Rose, also called Dog Rose, Dogberry, Wild Brier. It is the common European wild rose. I did not find a specific meaning, but I know it has many uses. Their hips are rich in vitamins and they are very useful to prepare jam, beverages, herbal tea, jelly, oils, syrup and marmalade. I like roses very much and I think this card is special for Mother's Day because all roses, expensive or wild, are beautiful for mothers.
