Hi Kanika. Thanks so much for your suggestion on the lettering on my Greenery Holiday design (and the like!!!). I took your advice and removed the green shadow from the back. I though it would give it an interesting dimension, but it does look more clear without it. Best of luck to you and THANKS again! :)

Hi Kanika, Thanks for your feedback! Please don't be disheartened about not winning in the last 4 wins... I think this is a journey for all of us, and we all are learning together. You have some beautiful work. It might help to look at some of the work of your favorite designers, and, try to learn from them, or enroll in skillshare.com to learn some additional skills if that helps.... I am here if you need help, and everybody on minted is so wonderful, and, always willing to help. Grateful for your friendship! Mansi.

Hi Kanika just to say thanks for your feedback on roman holiday - which I totally agree with and I've gone for the full bleed - there's another poll going now on 3 photos and I changed the font too if you get a moment to vote! I love your designer Giraffe up there by the way. Love the yellow and black combo :)

Hi Kanika! I ended up going with a totally different photograph in my Holly & Pine design, which I think solves both my photo-picking problem & the white space dilemma! If you have the chance, I'd love for you to take another look at the design :) Thank you again for your notes: it helped push the design to where it is!

Hi there! I made some more changes to my submission- but I am not really digging the script font for "his love" and thought you might have a better font suggestion to try. Would you mind taking a look and dropping a few notes, I asked Jessie as well! Everyone's feedback is really helpful! Thanks in advance!
