Very cute. One thing... All of your designs are missing their borders.

the problem is, the background is white... how am I able to get a border without putting a stroke around my design (...and I don't want a stroke outline to be a part of my design)... any thoughts...?? thanks!

Did you download the submission kit provided by minted? In one of the folders is a file called - submission_image_550x550.psd which has a template that you can drop your image into and scale down to match up. If you're not using Photoshop, try adding drop shadow. OR you can right click and save-as on any of the other submission images that has the correct proportions/border and use that as you template background. Just plop your design on top and cover up the old design. Hope that makes sense...

I like the way you incorporated the pic into the design. It's creative. But I am not feeling the colors working. I think the black and green don't go together.

Hi Kimberly - I usually just put a blank rectangle border around my white designs (or you can use a white rectangle and make it the bottom layer) and then add a drop shadow just to this rectangle. I am using Illustrator as well. Hope that helps!
