Your umbrellas are fantastic! I might tighten up the text some, it feels a tad "all over the place."

I really appreciate the feedback ladies. Can you be more specific about the text...do you mean the tracking/kerning, the leading, the font choice, the color choice?

The leading isn't working for me between your sections along with the kerning of the address line. Two colors of text may work better than three as well. Do I make more sense this time? :)
