Ack. HI Anne, I agree with your recent comments on FB and while you might not be referring to me I submitted a design and immediately regretted it and asked that it be taken down. When I didn't hear back I submitted a dummy type design to cover it up never expecting people to like it but a few did. I don't know how to properly address this except for me to never submit in the last 30 minutes. It is frustrating. You've got some great designs submitted.

Hi Anna. I think I like the version better with the branches. The version without is nice and clean, but I really like the depth that the branches give to the first version. I showed the screen to my husband and daughter, and both of them wondered how it would look to have the branches fall behind the vertical ornament strings. I'm not sure that that would be better than having them in the front, but thought I'd throw out that idea. Also wondering if the branches might look nice with just a slight bump in it's magenta and/or yellow formula - maybe 1 or 2%. Hope this helps! Either way, it's a real winner of a design!
