Aww! So cute - and love that apple! I would jus move the whole thing (text and illustration) down just a little, so it's centered on the layout :)

Very sweet! Even though you are referring to both parents, I still think "apple of our eye" might read and sound better than 'eyes' plural :)

I agree with Kimberly on the apple being even smaller and the words curved around the apple. This is a sweet design Nazia. You are close. :)

I think the smaller heart and lettering look better, but now you need to re-space the elements, particularly moving down the apple/curved test.

This is cute! I always like "apple of my eye" concepts :D The foil on the apple gives it a special touch but I do like the previous coloured version too. I wonder if both could be provided as options?

This darling. I think i would try scaling down the heart. Also I'd love to see "the apple of our eyes" all on one curve above the apple.

Great concept here! I suggest trying the info text (date, weight, length) below the baby's name and keeping that typeface pretty simple. Also, not sure the T in "The apple.." needs to be capitalized. My eye keeps getting drawn to the T instead of the apple. Overall, really sweet design and works great with the trim!

I think you've got a good start here, I think this is a cute concept and I like the typefaces you've chosen. Have you tried sizing up the apple a bit more? Make it take up the entire top 2/3rds of the design. Maybe place your text inside of the apple (minus the heart)? I also agree that the baby details should go under the name. Maybe use your heart to separate the details for the parent's names?
