First, I want your opinion. Below are two pictures of the same card, one with a white background and the other with a red background. In the case of white card bases, I've typically used a colored backdrop so the card pops. But looking at these two photos, I'm just not sure. Which do you like best?
Second, this card was inspired by Becky Oehlers' Spooky halloween card here, which was published in Card Creations Vol. 7. For the record, I like Becky's card better, mainly because she creates a fabulous visual triangle with the black button, capital "S", and the spider. My spots of color don't form a triangle...I could have made the "p" a capital and red, but didn't. Flawed as it is, I do like this card for its crispness and the basic idea of a word with an element hanging through it. Very graphic and fun. For some reason, the silver line doesn't show up well in the photos, but IRL it's very clear.
