I like the birch half with the cute bird.

Love the illustration on the right side. I would completely simplify the left, getting rid of the dark gray and pulling from the palette on the right to make the design more cohesive. The fonts are too casual.

Thanks for the feedback Alex and Amy E. I really appreciate your help. I've changed the colors and the font. Please let me know if you think this is better.

Much better! One more suggestion would be to continue the bumpy rough edge of the separating tree, rather than cutting it with a straight line.

Wow! I really like the use of brown. The red bird is very cute.

I think if the font colors matched the red bird it may look better. I prefer Merry Christmas over Season's Greetings- but that's preference.

I like the theme as well but the design just didn't really get to that sophisticated level for me- the entire left side could use refinement and more modern type choices

Beautiful!

Just noticed that the image of Emma is flipped. Not sure if you want to be doing that.
