Sketch Ideas

I thought it would be easier to create a new post for this, but these are my ideas for having a sketch made for my Kindle Box Set cover. After spending a couple of hours looking, I think I'll have to have someone draw up an image. Here are some images that I thought I might use as examples. (I gave them numbers to simplify discussion.)


#1  What I would really want (except with white roses):


Some sample sketches:







#5  This one would also need simpler white roses:


#6  Another illuminated manuscript, maybe I could have someone draw something from these roses:


Any thoughts on these? I was also considering requesting large white roses with a few small red roses too. I mean, if I am having something custom made anyway.....


Thanks again! You guys are an awesome author support team!
