I noticed something that I didn't notice before, so I'm writing you a critique.

On a real playing card, the two halves look exactly a like, but yours does not. If i was to flip the bottom to the top, I would see a "yellow flap of fabric" that is not on the other side. In addition, the two decorations on the right hand side are not the same so they do not meet in the middle. So you're not creating a "typical" playing card as the instructions for the challenge says.

You have plenty of time to either edit this one or start a new one, and I hope you do. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Outstanding card!!! Love your theme and stock image you selected.

The only thing I would change is the color of the heart and the number...maybe something a little more red and less orange..right now my eye is drawn to the numbers and not your model.
One of the hearts also has a nick that needs to be corrected.
Good luck!! :blowkiss:

Wow, so interesting :D This is beautiful, wonderful choice of stock, it's great that you did not keep the two parts identical. The bamboo spacer is a great touch. It feels a bit "messy" like it could do with tidying up a touch, your corners lap a little where the Q is.

This is wonderful and I wish you all the best in the challenge :iconflowersplz:

Cool idea to make the picture go the opposite way on the bottom, like a real "Queen" of hearts playing card. Good luck in the challenge.

This is a nice design. See what you can come up with to make it even better. :)
