Great illustration! For the "Happy Birthday"coloring, I would commit to either yellow or white as the alternating colors doesn't work. Also, "Happy" seems to be a bit off center. But overall, I really like it.

Love this!! Great colors. I agree with the off-centerness of the birthday...but that's pretty easy to fix. :)

I love the colors and illustration! I'm not completely sold on the Currency font, but that might just be personal preference. Maybe it's the size of "Sophie?" I kind of feel like it is competing a little bit with "Happy Birthday." Nice job!

Thank you Minties.. Geez, I'm so embarrassed about the off-centerness :) Thank you for your suggestions.. I'm going to go back and see what works.
