I love all the nature (flowers, greenery) that you create!! I feel like the greenery and the font here would lend themselves well to having a photo, maybe?

Hey Monica! I think this design could be a standout for sure, but something that is a little distracting to me right now are the leaves on top and bottom. They are the first things my eye goes to and I don't even see the text. I think you could do 2 things to fix this: either increase the size of the names a good bit so they regain the focus, or I would consider scaling down the leaves, maybe adding a couple in each corner instead of just one, and choosing a color that is less commanding. Does that make sense? I think the green you have right now is sort of demanding attention...where as a subtle color, closer in tonal range to the background would make them more of a design element and not the first thing you see. Hope that helps! I definitely think you are on the right track though and love the concept of this design for sure :)

It's so pretty! I like the added element of the heart, but maybe play around with it a little - I was thinking it might look nice smaller and more opaque, above the names? Just a thought :)
