The ones that immediately make me say "Love it!" (to myself) somehow often turn out to be your designs =)

suggestions welcome -- I haven't quite finished, still think the egg shaped ovals need something inside of them?

Wow! Love your graphic. I read your comment. Maybe you don't need the white egg shape ovals? Pick up another portion of this wonderful design element and let the information be the only area filled with white.

Love the colors and graphic. I am thinking maybe some orange dots inside the eggs-- like the white ones on the sides?

Beautiful! I like the suggestion of dots inside the egg shapes. Something subtle because I think the white shapes help anchor from top to bottom.

This is so great, Alaina. I think you could use something subtle inside the white ovals just to draw your eye more to the center space, but, really, this is stunning as is. Nice job.

this is so eye catching! Love the colors and the pattern! Wondering if there might be a way to create a little more air around the type? It's just feeling a little bit crowded on the sides to me.

This is beautiful, Alaina! Maybe for the oval, you can try a simple flower shape in the middle surrounded by dots, or flower petals coming from the top and bottom, as if there were a flower on the very top and bottom of an egg? Just a couple suggestions. This is absolutely fabulous! :)

so so pretty! love the color palette. heaps of great suggestions for the egg shapes; i think a delicate pattern from the larger design would work well.

thanks all for your awesome comments. definitely think something more delicate is appropriate for the inside of the "Eggs"
