Edited the type based on suggestions so it (hopefully) doesn't compete as much :)

This is absolutely gorgeous! Have you tried using a sans serif font for the body copy,somehow I feel the slab serif is not complementing your pretty florals,I think a sans serif would complement the feminine feel more. It's JMO though, but try it & see how it looks or else you could always go back to this one. Love the florals & your color combination.

Beautiful Erin! Maybe the light gray type could be a hair darker to read on screen, just 5-10% or so.

I love how your sketch (I saw on Instagram) turned into this! I agree with Nazia about trying another font for the grey type.

The type changes were smart. Much more balanced now. This has great impact!

Lovely flowers! It seems kind of difficult to read the "Join Us" and date at the bottom. I think you could make all the type the dark navy. Perhaps make the "Join Us" the same size as "for a memorable" so that it doesn't compete with "mother's day".

Gorgeous illustration! I agree that 'join us' is competing with 'mothers day'. I actually think you could possibly do away with the 'join us, etc. top copy' altogether and just have Mother's Day and the info. Maybe something to play around with anyway.

Thank you Jessica and Anna! The more I look at it, the more I realize you're right - maybe with the text, less is more - since there is so much going on with the florals. I'm going to play with it tonight and see what I can do. Thank you thank you!!!
