Darkened the text and colors a little. Thank you for the feedback, TwoBirds Paperie and Lynn - I appreciate it!

Thank you Susan and Lynn for your nice comments! Lynn - I'm not sure what you meant, since the overlapping hearts were already somewhat transparent to show the combined color. I added a darker outline around each heart in each's respective color to show the overlap - is that what you meant? Please let me know if this is an improvement...or if I am missing something! Thanks so much!!

or should the outlines be transparent white, to appear lighter than the inside of the hearts??

Kim, I didn't read the design name before. I did not realize that they were two overlapping hearts and that the middle field is essentially the overlap. Nice concept! I'd darken up the type a bit for readability.

Sweet! Maybe try making the two outer shapes transparent so you see the overlap into the middle shape? this is a good palette for that technique.
