Your cards are always so nice. Do you have a book of patterns that you follow or do you come up with these ideas on your own? I recently found a website that has weekly card sketches that give you ideas for how to position the elements on your card. Here's the url http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/
Your instructions are also very helpful for me because I can use your pattern as a guide.
Both are helpful for a beginner like me.
