RIght now, I just have a white background - think that works or would be better with color?

I'm having the same problem! haha. I really like the white background, it gives the leaf a lot of contrast. But you could always do a poll if you have some other bg colors in mind.

I agree, I love the white, it just makes the oval shape difficult to visualize, so I added a tiny border where the cut-off should be. I do not intend for that to be a part of the design, though - do you think that's clear?

I don't think the lettering would pop as much with a background color. It's great as is!

the white is very nice. It keeps the lovely words as legible as possible.

Since customers will be able to buy rectangle or oval, I wouldn't add the oval border unless you intend it to print that way. There was some discussion on this, and Minted doesn't want any extra borders/drop shadows/etc. that aren't actually part of the design. Your calligraphy is gorgeous... I want this! :)
