Thank you so much for your warm advice, Melanie. Your suggestions are so to the point. I changed the fonts as you recommend, but keep the location in tiny size for information purpose. :) I feel that the card is instantly elegant after the revision. So happy! Please feel free to let me know if you have further advice. :)

Hey Melanie! You just left me such a nice comment on my "pieces of earth". I'm not 100% sold on the fonts. What do you think...do you mind looking again for me?? I value your opinion. Thanks!

Hi Melanie, I just wanted to tell you that I was just informed that a design recently submitted to the Deck the Halls challenge is very similar to a design you created, which is already being sold on Minted. I just wanted to say that I had no idea this was the case before I submitted by design. I hope you do not think I was copying you, because I swear this is not the case. I will take my design down ASAP and try to rework my concept a little, then resubmit it with a new look. Sorry for the mishap. I truly did not mean to offend you. If I have, my apologies.

I was remiss in not extending good luck wishes to you, as well, Melanie - but with designs like Galactica and those great dragonflies and ladybugs, you hardly need luck! :)
