I love this concept! Super cute! A few things that would make it even better...I would play around with the text coloring. I'd love to see more of the blue to make it more baby and less somber. Maybe do the box blue with the white text and have the headline "lets help kim..." in that dark gray you used for the ducks eyes? I would also center the text, right now it looks like it's more on the right that the left. And the mommy duck, her beak isn't as defined as the daddy duck's. I really really do love this, clean & simple.

Very cute idea, but there is a lot going on right now. I think the design could be simplified a bit - nix the gray corners, keep the text within the green instead of overlapping the white - to make it a lot stronger.

I agree with Lea. Simplify the background stuff so your illustration can shine.
