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. :)
