Hey, Stephaine! I removed one row of waves at the top (V.3). Let me know what you think! I'm kind of leaning towards the waves going to the top, but I kind of like your suggestion, as well. Hey there fellow minties - could you help Stephaine and me out? Waves to the top (image up now) or remove row (V.3)? Appreciate any and all feedback! And thanks again, Stephaine! :)

I think the design is looking great! I was actually going to suggest adding a row to give you an even number. One comment, maybe you should take the wave color down slightly to balance out your delicate type?

I thought the original design was a bit too literal, so I got rid of the ocean/sand bgrd + just went with the abstract waves on white. I also adjusted the text a bit for a cleaner look. You were right, Sydney, the varied text in the previous version wasn't working. Thanks so much for all your help! Let me know what you think. Better?

Yes! Love the changes! Maybe you can re-purpose the ocean gradient for another design :)

I kind of wish the pretty ocean color was carried throughout the design; it's so cheerful and provides great contrast against the white text. Or maybe the text could move to the top . . . Also, I'm not sure what I think about the varied type for the date. Maybe all script? I love so many things about this design- just not sure if all of the elements are working well together. Hope you don't mind me picking it apart :)

Thanks so much, Sydney - I totally don't mind at all! I've been working on this for a while now, and I think I must've made a million changes back + forth with the text + the color. I still wasn't satisfied with it when I uploaded, so I really appreciate your comments! It's always nice to get a fresh pair of eyes to look at your designs. I'll try to play around with it a little more and repost. Thanks again, Sydney!!! :)
