Hi Summer, thanks so much for the congrats on my baby shower entries. I am very surprised your Lemurs did not win. They were absolutely adorable. I know how you feel when when you have an entry you really love though. It is a bummer. You have some wonderful Holiday entries! And best of luck!

Thanks so much for your feedback on my "Peaceful Dove" submission! I really admire your work. I went with option B and widened the clipping mask, as you suggested. Option A was the more popular (roughly 60%), however I kept coming back to the layout of B and couldn't resist using it as my final version. Thanks again and best of luck with everything!

Hi, I just noticed your most recent update. I was referring to version 3. In your newest version, the only thing I would change is SEPT and 2019. I feel like it needs more balance. Maybe go with version 3 or change the font. You could try the same font for the ampersand for the date :) Let me know if you need any more help :)
