The colors and style remind me of a vintage Wrigley's gum wrapper. Very cool.

Very nice, I like it. But what do you do about longer names? Also, your image is a little off center.

thanks kerri. the frame may need to be modified a bit to accommodate a longer last name, easily done. as far as the photo...the left edge is the edge of the photo supplied. i tried enlarging the photo slightly however i wanted to keep the xmas tree.

Oh, okay. I was figuring that Minted did not want to altering designs that way. Also, I was referring to your web image being off center. I think it's just a matter of how you cropped or copied the design and then pasted it onto the template. A minor issue though.

For this challenge, we’re asking designers to create a modern, sophisticated holiday card inspired by a specific geographic location of their choice.

I like how you pushed the colors to the edge of being acceptably Christmassy, in a vintage/modern sort of way.

this design is catchy, but I'm just trying to figure out what makes it "northern"...
