Vale O Card

This is a recent birthday card I made for someone on the 21'st. I used cloud effects and Nouveau motifs. It may seem a bit dark for a birthday greeting, but dark at times just feels classy to me. 

There's actually some symbolism in the card, because I enjoy adding hidden messages or metaphor to my work. The roses, black and gray color choices, and Vale O all mean something, something personal. I added the symbolism for my own comfort and relief.

On a side note, creating this card sprung some other ideas, the center piece reminding me of a rotary saw. I may work upon this idea in the near future, make an image having to do with tools of nature.
