I did not realize that the actress who played Melanie from Bunheads was going to be Polaris in the new X-Men show. I made a new gif trailer for it in celebration.
I copied down all of the links to individual cards I made. Mostly because it's easier to log in, open each in a new window and then vote on them that way. The first batch, the voting ends on the 15th, the second batch starts on the 15th. That said, you don't really need to vote, I like sharing them because I had a lot fun with them. They're not all winners, but I always get better with practice. Individual links below - see them all here: https://www.minted.com/creative/cs

Some are better than others. I really love some of them though. I mostly used Shonda's text because I loved what she came up with. Please vote for them if you have a Minted account! All of them are here, but only the "The Better Together..." cards are in the voting stage now. They'll be able to be voted on, liked, and commented on until the 15th.
Not sure where to go with this yet.
I've been playing around with watercolors a bit for the background on the Shine Bright and Mother ones. The foil on both is a little difficult to represent, but would look beautiful in real life. I have polls for a few of them as well, but I think I'm going for peach "you are not alone", yellow "shine bright" and watercolor "mother". https://www.minted.com/creative/cs
There's never a wrong reason for a Beyonce lyric. I was on the fence about censoring it. I'm not upset by strong language but I have friends who are and I respect where they're coming from.
