I'd love some feedback on this one, struggling with the bottom half- is the 'Joy' + banner too much, was the more simple text better? (@katie, thanks!)

Oh la! la! I like the new version and your wreath is nicely balance in colour and space - either is both great!

I was going to comment on the earlier one that it needed some punch to balance the wreath and I think you've got it with this version!

Absolutely gorgeous wreath! To me, the wording in the banner could use just a little more breathing room. I'm also missing the connecting piece of the banner that goes behind the 'O'.

beautiful. I think the condensed font you used for 'Joy' works well with the shape/style of the leaves on the illustration. Nice job.

Wow, thank you all for the comments- guess the Joy and banner stay! :) @Hannahcloud- the green has a fabric texture layered in that gives it that speckled look.
