It's absolutely gorgeous, love this! The color is super elegant, but I'm kind of on the same page as you wondering if it's not too 'dark' for a baptism? Undecided I guess- maybe a poll with some other different/non-pastel colors as alternates (navy? teal or deep rose? gold?) I don't think you can really go long, the design itself is so strong!

This is gorgeous Jessica! Perfection! I don't think it matters what color you change it too, it's lovely either way!

your designs are always so perfectly balanced! love this :) I love the black - it's so formal and elegant, but I know what you mean; maybe poll a few colors?

This is stunning. I get what you mean about the black. What if you went in the opposite direction with white and your accents in foil? I don't think you can go wrong with whatever you do.

Polling for advice. I tried other darker colors and wasn't thrilled with the outcome. So pastels it is! And a kraft option which is below, but it wouldn't let me load the 4th image for some reason. So I'm attaching it.

Beautiful layout - love how the line weights of the type and swirls marry so perfectly! I agree that the black is a bit dark for the occasion. I love the pink one for a girl :)

I like this soo much! I would go with a b, because it's a nice sweet colors for girls and boys. Though I love a my personal thought is that is to strong for babies.

I vote for b. Although I really love the dark color, I think the blue will appeal to more people. You can always save the black for an additional color way. Also, kraft was a close second to the blue. It is a beautiful design and will stand out no matter what.

I chose C. I like the delicate feel of the type/illustration and think the soft pink goes well.
