Hi Ann! I really appreciate your comment on my deer card, but I have a question for you. I am wondering about the leading - the top font is thirsty soft, and since the letters all connect, wouldn't it look strange to spread it out? Maybe I'm misunderstanding? I'm really new to design so I don't always have my terms right. Thanks so much for your help!
