my only issue is the mixing of the serif and san serif font... but it may just be me. ;)

Whaat? I love it when serif and san serif fonts and 'mixed' together [well, correctly, anyways]. They make for a good contrast and better typographic exploration in a piece. :)

I think this is more suited to the metropolitan style. Also, this image was used in a previous challenge, it would have been nice to see the colors change a little bit. Just my opinion. Still, very nice work.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I had a hard time deciding which category to place this design in. I think it could go either way: Garden or Metro. I am also going to stick with the combo of serif / san serif bc I think it creates more visual interest ... I tried all san serif, but I still prefer the mix. Finally, I think one of the strengths of this design is that it can be converted into many different color schemes... I decided to keep this color scheme bc ideally it could be used in addition to the thank you card as a universal motif.

This looks just like a Bella Figura invite that I like. Pretty, but it looks JUST like it.
