Love the general idea and colors. I think it's too close to the actually label though.

Better? There's a fine line between coming too close to their image and veering so far that the overall theme is lost, right?

Better. I don't think you need the 20 08.

I like your overall color scheme. It is rustic, but still looks like a Christmas card. With your original design, I wasn't sure if the overt booze reference was such a good idea on a family-oriented card, but I figured with certain pre-conceived notions of The South, it was probably fine :) I like this better now, since it gives a nod to the whiskey, and all the southern traditions behind it, without directly copying it.
