This swap was a little different - the host sent out a selection of pre-made background cards and we had to use them to make a card. You were allowed to alter them quite drastically if you wanted to, but I tried to keep to the spirit of the exercise and make sure the background showed well.
So I'm showing the finished card, with the background, in each case. Sometimes the background was fairly neutral, like the one below. Sometimes it led the card, like the one above.
