Sub Rosa Playing Cards USPCC
The back of the cards features a beautiful hand-drawn watercolor two-way design with floral themes such as vivid-colored flowers and leaves which are contrasting the navy blue background.
The tuck box teases its' contents with a preview of the cards, with intentionally muted colors to differ from the back design while also preserving all similarities.
For the faces, we have decided to stick with the familiar and brilliantly designed standard faces that we all love but with a touch of our style. The Jokers are two identical beautifully hand painted watercolor red roses, the pips have been redone with a watercolor style and the same texture is applied to the court cards.

This deck has a nice feel when shuffling. The design was perfect for a gift for my wife. She really liked the classy floral design.
This deck is way too easy to overlook. At first glance, it might look like the little box of potpourri your grandma used to have around the house but inside, it's all beauty and simplistic perfection.
These cards are a true beauty. They are not the softest cards I own, but they are amongst my favorite. The floral back design is pleasing without being busy. They aren't so ornate as to make a spectator suspicious of them. And the gaff cards are welcomed. These are definitely a deck I will always carry with my.
Some custom decks are so heavily customized you can't use them for card games or magic. This is not one of those. The cards have enough of a standard look, that it's ideal for working situations or a poker night. Yet it's still customized enough to look very classy. I especially love the gradient colours on the pips - still very much black and red, but a very elegant look. The court cards also look more classy than usual, since they have eliminated blue. The colours are also a bit more soft/muted, and less garish than a regular deck. The card backs have flowers, and won't suit everyone, but I like the overall look. Very versatile deck!
Listen, if you like subtle flower designs then buy this deck right away. The backs are beautiful but aren't for everyone. I almost gave this deck 4 stars and then realized I was being unfair to it just because it didn't fit my style. the courts are nice with the subtle change to their coloring and the pips in this deck I love. the red pips are just a gushing red that is unlike anything I have seen before. Just like the other reviews say, My wife loves it and she doesn't like many other decks so it could make a great present.
