I would use the dark gray instead the greenish blue on the snowflakes up top. It would give it a nighttime snow in the city feel. Good work.

It is very eye catching. Wish you could do one of emma too. :-).

This illustration is comical & playful but feels very heavy at the top

I agree, the decoration of snowflakes is very heavy at the top. I also feel that this card is too generic: it doesn't scream midwest to me, just "big city".

andrea - i guess you aren't familiar w/ the chicago skyline? midwest doesn't have to mean barns and haystacks.

I think this would actually look really nice with a black and white picture....
