I wanted the design to be really simple but powerful so the image would draw your eyes right away, so I used a really clean layout with a lot of white space. I also didn't want the colors of the card base and layers to stand out very much, so I went with monochrome.
I am incredibly photo-editing-illiterate. I tried for a long time to figure out how to save my watermark as a brush but I just couldn't do it. I made it work anyway, because that's how I do things. Ha!

Please note that these cards have absolutely nothing to do with 100 in 100. I will start that tomorrow and track my progress post by post. I wanted to use these cards as a "trial run" for editing and posting to my blog. I think I did okay ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
