Thanks, Christina, Ana and Stacey. Ana - I agree. How's this? Also, here is my proposed backer design. I think this would fit several wedding styles - modern, rustic, art deco, ethnic Chinese, etc. Tangram puzzles would make perfect favors or table accessories.

Thanks so much, Mariel - I really appreciate the feedback! I've moved things up a bit to try to "even" things out a little. When I centered the heart in the top space, it looked a little "off," so hopefully what I have done has made it more balanced. Comments/critiques appreciated!!!

I love this! And I love the colors. It was one of my first favorites :) My only critique is that it's feeling a little bit "bottom heavy" to me. I wonder if you could shrink the font a tad, and also create a bit more space at the bottom so that the spacing feels more balanced around the heart and around the words. And if the spacing was equal from the top of the heart – top of the page and the bottom of the heart – top of the text? Hope that makes sense! Great piece, Kim.

Comments and critiques appreciated. Here are a couple of possible backers. I think I prefer the second backer - the one with the chevrons (no pink diamonds). Anyone else have a preference?

I love the heart shape. I think that should be the focus. The copy in color distracts from that. Maybe try the copy in gray and in a thinner font and give the heart more importance? It is a super cool shape.
