NIGHTBLOOM MANDALA WITH POEM AS CARD

This is with a lighter frame. I think this is better. In resizing the image, I momentarily came up with this version in which the flowers overflow the frame a little. I shrunk them down to fit into the frame in the last version, but I think this is a nice effect. Sometimes it grabs the attention when you break the rules in little ways like this.

Let's add one more refinement with this post. v3 will be with the row flowers within the lighter colored frame, v4 will be with the flowers spilling over the edge of the frame.

NIGHTBLOOM MANDALA WITH POEM AS CARD

The same thing with the frame. Perhaps a lighter colored frame would be better. We'll try that next.

Note to KR: This is the first one you asked for. This is enough for tonight, but it gives you an idea of the possibilities and how easy it is to make these changes and offer versions to your specifications.

NIGHTBLOOM MANDALA WITH POEM AS CARD

Putting the poem on the back is something I hadn't thought of, but I think it works well.

Note to KR: You have opened up a whole new line of thinking about these card designs. This is the first one you asked for. I didn't use a frame with this one. Without the frame, it maximizes the size of the mandala. One with the frame is coming next.

Labeling these gets more complicated as I generate more versions of the images, so I am initiating two new refinements with this post. I am calling this version of the nightblooming mandala with the rows of flowers on top and bottom "A". Also this version with the text on the back without frame will be "v" for version 1.

PINK TREE BELLS WITH GIBRAN QUOTE

This card is made with the first pink tree bell mandala and the first Kahlil Gibran quote.

Note to KR: This was not on your list, but you asked about the possibility; so I took it as a test. I printed one of these and it worked fine. I could set up a fourth blog to use just for posting things to you. If that would make things easier, let me know.
