Picture Perfect

I need new business cards.  I have almost run out.  Yikes!!!  Thank goodness I have a brother-in-law who can help me set them up professionally.  My dilemma is choosing the picture for the background.

I am looking for a picture that conveys serenity and energy all at the same time.  I know it's a tough one.  I also want it to look professional without looking like I just picked a picture out of a book.  This is the reason for using one of my own pictures.  Now I just have to make a decision about which one to use.  I am asking for some assistance with making that choice.

As a little bit of a plus one person (to be randomly picked) who picks the winning picture will receive a one free 3 ounce minimum bar of handmade soap worth $5-6 from my shop.   I have a list at the bottom of the page to chose from or you can go to my shop.  Do be aware that some soaps may still be curing.  In this case I will ship your soap as soon as it is cured.

  1. I pick #4, it looks like home :)

  2. I like the bench. It's such a serene scene and the viewer can picture themselves sitting down int he scene also. Take care, Linda

  3. I also love the bench. It conveys calm but I love the country mix of flowers at the front of the bench...

  4. The black-eyed Susans and Lavender bliss would be my pick! I'm sure whatever you decide your new business cards will be great!

  5. Hi Lois,
    All of your photos are lovely and would be very pretty! I suggest #1 just because I know that putting lettering over a colorful or very textural photo can cause the resulting card to be difficult to read. If you want to go with the other photos, perhaps you can fade the photo to make it easier to overlay your lettering?

    Thanks for sharing on The HomeAcre Hop!

  6. I like #3. Thanks so much for sharing @ I Made That! Thursday!!
