I decided to go back over the cards I've created and based on initial feedback, I am going to go with oracle style, but will add a few tarot elements from the Major Arcana. I plan some animal spirits as well. I've also decided to keep it pretty simple, because it seems that the majority of those polled like the simple look. I fooled around with boarders and more elaborate backgrounds but kept coming back to simple black. I did add some text, which I have always liked in oracle cards. Here is an example of a finished card.
