Love the poinsettia pattern....It really grabs my eye! I'm not crazy about the placement of the 2010 stamp.....I think it fights with the pattern.

It does seem a bit random... I'll play with it some more.

I really enjoy the use of the leaves on this one Amy. It's a good balance too between pictures and print.

Great illustration! I love the texture you created for the background. The date stamp is a great touch too!

Goes great with black and white, nice choice

Poinsetta leaves! I didn't realize that's what those were until closer look. The design is so conducive to baby pictures. I love it!

Tanya on Jun 18, 2010 at 12:48pm

My LEAST favorite! It is just not pretty at all. Neither does it evoke the holidays.

Love this so much, Amy. The only thing that is bothering me is the way the text feels unbalanced due to the uneven words on each side of "christmas cheer". Maybe "sending CC your way" or "wishing you CC all year long" or "sending CC to you".

This is great Amy. I love your poinsettia leaves & the dotted background. I've been working on a poinsettia design but it's not ready yet. I love your take on it.
