I might be the only one, but find the foliage a bit distracting. Maybe if there weren't so much contrast? Still fantastic, though :)

UN....BELIEVABLE!!!! You're awesome.

The colours are gorgeous! My only suggestion would be maybe to move the top line ("a baby shower for") together with the header.

this is gorgeous, do not go monotone! the play between the turquoise and peach is so subtle. i do find the dividing line between the pink and turquoise under the "bonjour" a little distracting because it's the only hard horizontal line in the design. i'd be curious to see how it'd look with less contrast, or an angled or slightly curved line.

You are truly an incredible illustrator! Amazing. I don't think you need the color variations in the top line- I find them a little distracting from your gorgeous drawing.

Wonderful illustrations! The pink and the teal really work well together - it's reminiscent of a sunset.

The red sky feels ominous to me and not the pale, pastel-ness that is often associated with Paris. Everything else though looks wonderful!

Incredible illustration, Lori! Almost looks like a still from a Pixar movie (okay....that's pretty much the biggest compliment I've ever given someone :) I do feel as though you might want to drop the opacity on the background a little big more. By no means is the type difficult to read as is, I just feel as though the hierarchy is still a bit off...the "Bonjour Mademoiselle" is about the same length as the bridge, etc. I'm sure you'll get it just right by the deadline!
