What a charming cupcake! The second line is slightly off-center. I might justify the first and second line but that is completely subjective. I agree, your illustrations are always splendid!

Your illustration, colors and type are adorable, Cambria! My only nit-pick would be with the copy. While the play on words is really fun, it confuses me as toe whether it is a greeting card or an invitation. Been trying to think of a solution, but haven't come up with one yet...

Thanks everyone! Sydney: I was in a such a rush to submit, that I neglected to check my centering first + will fix. Karen: I agree that it may be confusing. I am trying to work on a solution to this. I think I may drop the word play + just use the illustration with different copy.

Great illustration... I'm sure it will holds it's own without the text.
