Thanks ladies! @Erin: it took way too long! Especially since I started off using a different ampersand as the base and decided halfway through it didn't look right ;)

very beautiful, but the important info is very small -- the card is dominated by the initials

This is really cool only thing I would suggest is having the ampersand a little darker

Love it! Might also look good with the initials a different color. Maybe a pale green, blue or pink. I would just play around with it so the & stands out a little more.

This is really nice, Sarah! I agree that the ampersand should either be darker or the color of the initials should be different to give it a little contrast. Nice job, though!

Really lovely. Agree with others about pushing colors a bit more.
