My youngest has been wrestling. I have no idea why - he's a little toothpick - and he's wrestled for all of 3 weeks while other kids have been doing it as a club sport for years. The teams are an odd mix of total beginners and multi-year national champions. My poor guy always seems to get paired against a national level wrestler, but he's a fighter. In one recent match, the father behind us - not knowing he was talking about our son - was saying that the other guy was a national level wrestler but that our guy was giving him a good fight. About that time, the whole crowd gasped - and the father said "Ouch, arms don't bend that way" - talking about my son, of course. He's totally OK but I'm not sure that I've recovered!!? So, I wanted to do a card for the end of the season in one week (thank goodness!) that told him he was definitely our star!!
This is a card that if I had all the time in the world - I would re-do...
If I could do it over, I would move the "V" and the embellishments to the left. Good design follows a 1/3 rule - the sweet spot. My focal point is just a little too far to the right to be in the sweet spot and so it looks off balance. My 13-year old is most definitely NOT going to notice so it is going to stay as is!!
