I like your revision! The white banner flags help to put more emphasis on the type and less on the banner itself. Really nice!

This is so sweet - I really love your illustration! The grass around the trees seems a little sparse to me... I wonder if it would work better without it... or maybe a few sprigs trailing off away from the trees? I really love the style of the trees though - gorgeous!!

hi erin. I have no doubt birthday banners will be a very popular design element in this challenge. I might try differentiating your design a little more by going with a monochromatic color scheme - or maybe a white banner with colorful letters instead. I would also loosen the tension on the banner so it's not as taut between the trees - in my opinion it would feel more relaxed/carefree. =D

All good suggestions. I will work on it more. I am just a little disappointed because I love this color scheme, and it was what I had in mind before the other one went up. I think the white with colored letters might set it apart enough and still keep the colorful element that I want.
