Hi all, I am a new Mintie and wanted to get some feedback on this card. Something about it isn't working for me. I wanted it to be a card that would be appropriate for kids-- kinda messy and loud. I love the "Bring it On" phrase but the layout isn't standing out to me. Any suggestions? thanks!

Hi Melissa! Welcome to Minted :) I think you have a great layout here, but I might simplify it just a tad -- maybe reduce the texture in the background - I think it would look great on just white or a subtle texture. Just my thoughts :)

Welcome to Minted, Melissa! I agree with Lori's comments. Also, the two fonts you used have a lot of personality, and I'm not sure they compliment each other. Maybe a plainer san serif font for that bottom type? Good luck to you!
