Thanks, Amy! I was struggling with those lines in the middle there...but then got exhausted and gave up and wanted to go to bed. Hahaha...but your comment spurred me on to update this AND do another one. Now that it's 4:00AM, I think I'll call it quits for the night. Thanks for your feedback!

Welcome Josh! My suggestion would be to use a different font for the lettering in the lights. When the text is something a customer will want to customize it's a good idea to use the fonts on the font list. It's disappeared at the moment for updating but this: http://pinterest.com/pin/227994799856795309/ will give you an idea of what fonts to use. I'd probably go with a sans serif for legibility's sake but you're off to a wonderful start!

Welcome to Minted, Josh! Love how you colored the green lettering - looks like watercolor.

Great first submission! Welcome. A couple suggestions would be to move the "and" over so it's not hanging off the edge. maybe shrink it a tiny bit to fit inside the M... but don't actually put it in the M. Does that make sense? Sorry, it's 2 am. The middle text is difficult to read. Maybe try a different font all together. Hope those were helpful. Good luck!
