Hi Kimberly! Thanks so much for your helpful comment on my design 'Eloquent'. I removed a line of copy and I swear it improved the design 1000%! The 'yummy white space' is literally gold. You are a genius - thank you again and good luck in the challenge! Your designs are all so beautiful. :)

Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my 'Desert Oasis'…Believe it or not when I started that design I was trying to channel my inner 'Kimberly FitzSimons' and make it this super elegant chic design…and a few hours later when I just couldn't make that work I started playing with patterns ;) Love your Save the Date entries, you make it look easy when it most definitely isn't!

Hi Kimberly - thanks for the feedback on "A Modern Love!" Due to your suggestion along with the others I've received, I started a new poll with different color combination -- one of them with a black text on the pink background! The color combo definitely showcase the option for lighter color backgrounds with the use of a dark, more legible color text. Thank you so much for your time!

Hi Kimbery, thanks for your comment on my "there will be cake" save the date card. I thought about the dates on the top tier as well. My first thought was also,it could be shortened to sept., aug, etc. or, maybe use all numbers... I am brand new to a minted, do you know if there is a a way I could recommend that as an option??? Cheers, Megan
