I love the front though but I would change the back. I would also take off the ambitious teenager. I always try to stay away from describing myself because I think it looks a tad fake because its all opinion. (not that you arent ambitious). Its like saying im a great worker, I care about customers, Im good looking(questionable). Actions speak louder than words and I think youre showing your ambitious, so id leave it at that. But thats just me, you asked what I would do if it was my own. sorry for the long critique, best of luck

Thanks for all of the support everyone, I'll keep in mind what all of you have said. Thanks again. Anybody else?

And also, I used Photoshop CS4 (free trial edition of course ) I own adobe Photoshop elements, but it's nowhere near as powerful as the real deal. I was going to try and use some indesign and illustrator, but I don't have enough time to learn two new programs before I send out fliers.

yeah, you have to watch out for that, I switched to a local printer and graphics designer because VistaPrint business cards are lame, they don''t stand out in any way. you gotta pay through the nose to make it look nice too.

Looks good!

Not to be nitpicky, but on the front the words "Let us" seems to be in italics but the rest isn't. I know that isn't a big deal, but just something I noticed along with ambitious having the 'n'. I agree with leaving that out anyway.

The "let us" is in italics. Instead of saying "make your property look this good" it's saying "LET US make your property this good".
