i love the sun illustration so much......but i feel like the type is kinda competing with it.

stacey, what kind of font do you suggest? maybe a really clean serif font? i would of course hope to have several different options available... ;) thanks for all the kinds words.

maybe if you just combined some of the lines of type to give some more negative space around the sun (and a clean serif could be really nice.....even if you left the script for the part of it). it is such a pretty sun that i want to look at it first instead of the name, and right now i think i notice the name first. i really like the overall feel of this card though. the colors are great, and "here comes the sun" is a very cute concept :).

thanks... maybe i will play around with the fonts a little...
