Love the wood grain texture you added to the rolling pin! I can't decide if I like the plate or cookie sheet version better. They're both great! :)

I like the plate version. And I love the changes too. The wood grain makes a big difference.

Very Cute! I think I like the cookie sheet version. The cookie sheet jumps off the background a bit more.

I agree it needs more dimension. Love the detail of the cookie missing the bite. Maybe very very soft, thin diagonal stripes in the background? I guess I'd have to see it to see if it would work.

Just saw your other submission with the soft diagonal stripes in the background. Haha.

What about flipping the entire illustration so the cookie plate is on the left and the cocoa on the right. Then "join us for" would be in a more logical place (reading left to right) as well as the cookies and cocoa. Also the green writing gets a little lost on the tan. Maybe the dark brown or white writing?

I agree with Jill; I think it would be good to pick up the color of the coffee or the ginger bread man in the writing on the rolling pin.
