I like the green bar with the drop out type. The solid hit of green adds depth but the design works without it.

This is a great way to combine the graphic elements. I miss the personalization.

So, you think I should add it back in?

Hi Rachel, since it is personal stationery and Minted business is mostly personalized products, I suggest adding back the name. I am also a recent member to the Minted design community, with no wins, so take my suggestions with a 'grain of salt' but this suggestion was given to me by a seasoned Minted pro. Welcome to Minted! Cheers, Robin

The polka dots are cute but they are distracting. Either border or polka dots.

I think so. I think it would be cute if the border had the same type of dots but white in the border and then maybe make it a little thicker?
