Can you see the design well enough? I couldn't find a photo that showed it off as much as I would like and I accidentally used one from my non-foil kit. Is that okay?

I think the top works really well with this photo, I think using the images from both is fine. (at least I hope so, I did the same!) I'm having a little trouble reading the bottom font though with the names and the year. It's really condensed, so you could just spread the spacing out a bit or just go with another font altogether.

What if you added the three lines you have on the left to the right side of Ringing as well?

Very fun design Kayla but I do agree with Morgan and Camilla on using a simpler, easy to read font for the names and year and put the 'shine strokes' on the other side near the diamond, just to balance it out.

You could always have a light color gradient come up from the bottom and have darker type.

Hi Kayla! This card is very clever, well done! I agree about changing to font of the names to make it easier to read. Have you thought about maybe having the little burst marks go on the other side of the diamond to match by the R in Ringing? Best of luck!

I'm not sure about the photo, but I think you can see the design! The only thing that's a bit difficult is the legibility of the names and year.
