very nice! great colors and vintage feel for the season. The rays feel like their reaching out to say thanks or give a hug. I like. good luck!

ok I just read your thought on fonts and looked again. You could try stretching the "we're thankful this" to the right, then stretch "to have you in our life" to the left and follow the curve of the banner, and see if you like that. Or maybe move is a better word than stretch. Just an idea. But I think it looks good the way it is!

Love this. You've used such traditional elements like the starburst and banner and made them extraordinary within this design.

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. I've been going back and fourth on fonts and welcome any input. Thanks.

I think this is great. The only suggestion I would have is making the dark stripes in the background lighter.
