Me gusta! I love all the handrawn elements especially the paper cuts/stencils. I also appreciate the colors you've used to capture the culture.

Thanks! You're right, design lotus--I could definitely afford to bump up the size of the message...it looks so much smaller in this preview than it did before :)

NICELY DONE! I haven't seen any other photo cards with Spanish wording. You might consider also offering a second option where all of the writing is in Spanish. I would personally prefer more 'Christmas-oriented' colors, but I like the folkloric design and give you a BIG thumbs up for using the Feliz Navidad. As someone who hails from New Mexico, I really, really appreciate that you thought of using Feliz Navidad! My native language is English, but I'm sure that the Spanish-speaking community would really love to find some creative photo cards like this in their language. Haven't seen any others. Would you also consider making this card with a Bible verse or some language directly related to the birth of Christ? Would be a great option for people seeking something with more of a religious message. Again, nice work!

Thanks for all of the positive and helpful feedback, Katherine! My boyfriend is Colombian and it's sometimes difficult for me to find cards/greetings in Spanish for his family---(and I know my situation isn't that unique!) I had them in mind when I was designing it, and hope to continue submitting designs both with and without Spanish.
