Kim + Sara, thanks so much! That's 2 votes for version 2. I've been going back + forth for like ever, and my brain is numb. Thanks so much for your feedback - I might just go ahead and change it back. :)

I'm torn, Lori - the elegance of this version is growing on me...but, like I said, winner either way!

Hi Samantha, I changed the type because I was going for a more elegant gothic feel, rather than a straight horror theme. I can understand where you're coming from, though, so thank you for your comment :)

Okay, I think I've been working on this one too long. I originally intended for this to have a slightly elegant gothic feel. I couldn't really find the exact font I was looking for, but I think this is pretty close. Thanks so much for the feedback, Aspacia! You were totally right - everything was looking really cramped before. Let me know if this is better. Thanks again, everyone! :)

I really liked Version 2, but this is definitely more elegant! A winner, either way.

your hand lettering is great! it make is even more unique and special. my only suggestion would be to have more white space, I think it's little bit cramped right now. I wonder how it would look without the underline. just a though.

Thanks, Aspacia! I'll definitely try it out. I agree - it does look cramped. I'll see what I can do - thanks again!! :)
