I've changed the format and used a bit brighter colours. Thoughts? Thanks for the help!

changes are looking really great!! maybe a little more space between two lines "May your holiday..." & "off the charts..." its a bit tight! good luck! <3

This is so clever! And I love that the colors feel festive and seasonal, but are still a couple shades away from the traditional red and green associated with the holidays....so very smart, both visually and conceptually!

I'd love some suggestions and feedback - I have a couple of designs in this vein...

Love it! I think I would go for a vertical A7 format though - it seems like it would fit perfectly.

This is so creative! I love the colors you used, and I personally really like the square format, but it would also be interesting to see it in a vertical A7 layout as LLC said.

Really like this, Stacey. I'd kind of like to see a little more Christmas colors... Good luck! :o)

terrific concept! I'd like to see stronger colors so they pop off that chart! I probably wouldn't try to hit your type right on the base lines so they don't compete - I would also make the grid lighter or another lighter color and keep the line weight heavier for the text.

Great idea, Stacey! I agree about brighter, more festive colours ... I'm also curious how it would look if the grid background was lighter in colour (more subtle), so the bars of hte graph and type pop a bit more.
