About the Design

comments from Susan:

This Oh Happy Day! Kids' Birthday Party Invitation card with baby's photo is for a 1 year old's party and plays on the simple shape that kids learn early: a square. The background is covered in curls in soft greens, with greenish-blues and soft, warm browns in the rest of the design. Everything is sketchy in appearance, except for the text, which is in linear-constructed blocks, countering the softness of the rest of the invitation. The design is asymmetric.

Hi Susan, Welcome to minted! I like the overall design but I'm wondering how it will look with a different pattern or no pattern at all. The "curls" are a little too busy for me:)

I agree with Anna ... the layout of your text is modern but the curls are making it dated a bit. I would leave it a flat color/no pattern.

Thank you Anna and Oma... unfortunately, made a trip to the ER and ran out of time to adjust the background! I appreciate your feedback.
