Thanks for your comments Minties. Paige, I tried changing the color of the red type but it just flattened out the invite without a pop of color. I also thought that maybe the girl's name and party should be the priority so I don't mind the red over the pink. I appreciate the feedback everyone--it makes me really think about every detail!

I love how all three of your fonts are so different, yet work so well together. Fabulous illustration!

love the theme and illustration. For me... the red font with the drop shadow doesn't feel cohesive with the style of the design. Super cute none the less. =D

Awe...I love it Ann! My only suggestion would be to take the red to navy because it's competing - let the banner shine!
