      The actual card is white. Background can be colored but printer is not able to print exactly to the margins.

    It has come to my attention that if I reject submitters loose 'credit points' or something. I don't want to punish people for submitting. What should I do instead?

      I looked into it, but with only two colours it's going to be hard to recognize. I submitted design #25, which I think you would like based on your comments and description. I welcome any feedback. På forhånd tak. :-)

      Det er mig der takker. :-) My own thought was some back ground single color line art that would illustrate the picture I uploaded. The lines should at least be 5px thick (don't know what scale you designers work in) and as few as possible. Then the other color used for text on top of the background illustration. But I completely understand what you're saying and thank you very much for reading the description.
