I softened up the "Will You" wording up top for option B (lighter stroke) and also centered everything a bit better. Any input is welcome! Thanks :)

Have you tried the "will you" without the stroke and just in black? I think it will stand out nicely against the kraft.

Hi Keri.. this is very cute.. (Just thinking out loud) but maybe consider "Will you" and the text below "Valentine's Day 2015" in the same cream color, as the top portion of your illustration? (no stroke) the Bee portion in black? The contrast may make it pop! Just a thought :)

Cute idea, it just seems a little busy to me. Maybe get rid of some of the strokes and use only 2 fonts? I chose B.

I softened up the top "Will you" wording a bit - thought that might lighten things up! Let me know what you think, thanks! :)

I like the simple background better. Maybe try the top type without the stroke around it!

Which background suits this design better? I'm also looking for general feedback. Thanks!
