Loved them all, but this is my FAV so far, Cascanete!


JUST LOVELY! I don't personally care if a card has titles. I like a small number somewhere just because it's useful reordering (I reorder after readings). LOVE that it will be borderless!
It's getting more and more exciting.....Can't wait for this to be out!

I agree that borderless would best suit this stunning deck. A small number in the upper right hand corner would work.

I have to agree on the clover - not because they are blue, clovers can have a blueish/pink colour, but the shape is.. interesting But I LOVE each and every other card!

Similar colours will do perfect! The organic feel is important I think.

Indeed. I vote for borderless (otherwise I'll end up cutting the border anyway), that also helps with the organic feeling - the readings will flow easier without borders. A small number will be fine, but you won't need titles, the pictures speak for themselves!

I must add tot this that I'm new to Lenormand, just looking for decks - but I guess that means I have a fresh view on the cards maybe And your style definitely speaks to me! I'm waiting for the Anna K. deck to appear, and I'll be waiting for yours as well! Can't wait to see more cards.

Thank you all so much once again. I knew right away when I started thinking about a deck that I wanted it to be borderless- because I too have trimmed some decks with borders : )

Here is the ring card:

LOVE the RING!


I especially like the PRONGS on it, something about them, just makes it seem so detailed. BEAUTIFULLY DONE.

Your deck is one of the most gorgeous that I have seen :') I would love to support this deck. I'll definitely be following it until its completion.

You're so talented! And me--I can't wait to see your Fox card. Foxes really speak to me.

My first impression of the Moon card was that it was a great big eye. My second impression was that I was looking at the moon through a telescope. Is that what you intended?

Love your art! I have yet to get in the Lenormand reading groove, but I want these.

Clover: The flowers confused me too. There are a variety of clovers that grow around here. None have blue flowers like that. And the shape of the leaves feel like they should be more round.

The yellow was what impacted me to swoon this card. The brightness of the sun without actually having the sun in the picture.

(I really need to take better photos of these sometime...)
Be VERY careful of hi res photos. There are card printing PIRATES and you need to protect your incredible and amazing art.

Borderless - yes!
Small text. Subtle.

These are superb - bold, unmistakable, sharp, exquisitely executed. So simple, readable and yet so well accomplished. Do push forward with this one and make it available.

I think the Heart could be slightly trimmed down in terms of foliage but you've already said that will happen.

I'd love to see this borderless, title-less, numberless and (oh go on then) playing card insert-less and available.

well done!
