Planetary birthday card reminds me of little planets in the universe. Hence, the name Planetary.
I didn’t have a visual image of what I wanted to create when I first started, and I ended up with this. I thought it looks rather artsy and abstract. ;) Do you think it’ll work as a boy/guy birthday card?
Sometimes inspiration might strike suddenly and you might create something unexpected. But such a process is random and might take a long time. If you have little time, it’s better to have a card idea in mind by browsing through others’ card ideas. :-)
