I just finished some cards and am wondering what others think...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6.../a-newcard.jpg

I like them, but I am always curious how other see what I see,

They really do look better in person: the berries stand out from the background much better than it appears on the monitor.

Any input is greatly appreciated!!!

I am assuming these are business cards and do not include the illustration above?
If so, my review is that they look great

Yeah, sorry - the illustration was just in the same scan and the card critique was an afterthought. Thanks!

I am glad someone finally asked... lol
It is an artistic stretch, for sure, but I just couldn't come up with an idea of a fairy (graphic) that I didn't think was sickly sweet. The concept if sort of an artistic interpretation: the fairies are everywhere, especially hiding behind little berries and high in trees. That way they are more real - not just a little cartoon character. It may be just me, but I think a picture of a fairy would be just too predictable and kind of cheesy.

I think the card looks great, very modern and stylish. To me the colours look a wee bit dark though, which makes it sort of hard on my eyes to read.

Thanks! OvernightPrints had rounded corners for an extra $2. I like that, too.

JenniferC> I agree that they may be a bit dark, although they look better in person with the slight gloss. I think the small print may be a bit harder to see. Thanks!
