Totally open to suggestions/feedback!
Your design is suffering from too many good ideas. I would simplify by nixing the jars and the barn board bg. My favorite elements are of the fireflies. The jars, although super cute- They are conflicting with the formal style of the fonts and swashes.
I know, I know...too many things. But I heart Mason Jars. :) What if I lost the barn board and fine-tuned the jars? (they're FPO sketches right now) Worth a shot or move on? Thanks!
I like the barn theme, perhaps if you lightened the color of the mason jars they wouldn't compete with the text as much
I love your designs. The pink lemonade is super cute. I think if you lightened the board so that it is not such a strong element, and then made the jars the same color as the text. There are too many beautiful elements competing with each other. I think also maybe the swashes do not go with the barn theme- although you can find something that will to bring it all together and still be formal enough for a wedding invite. Something that looks similar to a barn wedding type of look. Maybe draw it- since you drew the others and they will all go together. Just my thoughts :). Good job, though- the colors are lovely and I love your ideas!!
Thanks everyone - I appreciate the extra eyes! I'm going to keep playing.
This looks great! Much better!!!
I love this version!
I LOVE the jar and the fireflies- very cute. I'd be curious to see how this looked if the colors used were a bit more natural/outdoorsy- that might match the theme and informal quality of the jar.
Great rework! I adore the jar and the fireflies. I think the gray kinda throws me off a little. I might try a dark bark (dark choc + gray) color.
Thanks guys! Seems like everything I try, either the jar or the fireflies get lost....I"ll continue to play.
I love this exactly the way it is! the only problem is that I had a similar design, so I need to tweak mine!!
Love the design but the grey throws me off. Not sure what to suggest however!! Great job.
YES! much better. Love the single jar and the formatting of the type. Didn't mind the swirls at first, but this is cleaner. I love the idea of brown and blue too.
great improvement ... one jar was the way to go! i would simplify the design even more by removing the borders, it would be as if the lightning bugs could fly off the page.
Wow! Thanks everyone for taking the time to leave feedback! You've been so helpful. I'm going to leave it as is for now and take a break from it. :) Thanks again.
just love it!
This is beautiful! Great work!!!!! It's fun to see how this design has progressed thru the feedback! It's a gorgeous solution.
darling. And so original.
i like the changes! reads much better :) great job!!!
I think the artwork on this is gorgeous. Nice work!
So beautiful and original!!!
just noticed the rework of this and it looks really nice, great job. I love mason jars too. What a great idea.
love the color change! BEAUTIFUL!
Such a cute idea! Love the mason jar!
Love the concept! I am sure this would be a win as well :) Goodluck!
love the illustration. very nice!
This is a really great concept! I had an evening outdoor wedding last June and these would have been my pick. I was worried all of the little kids would get bored, but the caught fireflies during the entire reception. :)
it's going to look great in print AND in other colors - wonderful concept and execution!
Beautiful work and unique from other submissions. The "love" on the mason jar is just clever.
Thanks everyone! :)
I love the progression of this design from start to finish. One more little suggestion - I photoshoped out the 'We' at the top - I don't think you need it. =)
Thanks Amy! I get what you're saying and I agree with either way. But I actually prefer the "We" at the top for now so I can play off the two fireflies. My personal preference but the suggestion is much appreciated!
I adore this design!
magical! great design...
I'm really sad that I didn't see earlier versions of this design! It's turned out absolutely wonderful, though! I love the idea, I love the design, I love what you've done with the type. Very well done!
this is such a wonderful invitation. i just know that any wedding it's attached to would be magical.
Love the twinkly fireflies, Paige! Very magical and sweet design and great illustration - that jar is awesome. I want to go to this wedding!
great jar illustration and twinkling fireflies :)
This is really lovely. My favorite so far!
Again!! Great! Great work! I'm pulling for you!

I'm new to Minted and recently submitted my own art work for the first time. And as I started to browse Minted designs to build my "favorite designs" board, I came across this beautiful piece you created. I absolutely love it! It's simple, yet has such details and beauty in it. I hope to be able to design like this someday. Amazing job!:)
