haha, I hear that (about being excited about a first win). I got a voter-placed win for West Elm and I had to leave my office and run around the building, I was so overwhelmed and excited. It was at a point where I was feeling pretty discouraged too. Good luck with all the wedding challenges coming up and celebrate this victory for longer than appropriate :-)

Meagan, thanks so much for your comment on my Botanical Border Christmas card. I really appreciate it. I definitely struggled with that gray color - i wanted it to be subtle, but stand out slightly. I will play with it a little more once I get through the end of the religious challenge today ;-). Best of luck to you! You have some really beautiful designs in the challenge!

oops sorry Meagan I had 2 windows open and actually you mentioned the font as Isabella - it's called Butterscotch and is very similar - but it has tiny torn/ripped pieces to it so I thought it would go with the idea.

Hi Meagan! Always happy to help and thank you for your great advice as well! Yes, the kraft texture is just printed on so you can absolutely use white with it. I have a couple designs in my store that use kraft and white as a colorway. So definitely go for it! Can't wait to see what color you pick for your beautiful design!
