Thanks so much for the feedback! I have removed the stripes, as I was iffy on them as well - though I am a little sad to see them go. I also simplified the text. My personal tastes do tend to lean toward "busy." I need to remember the old rule of taking off two pieces of jewelry before I leave the house and apply that theory to my designs ;) Thanks again!

I really liked the stripes! I'm not sure how to suggest you incorporate them, but I think this version is too white...

I love this card! The design is unique and accents the subjects picture well.

This is really cute, Jenna. Welcome to Minted challenges! I love all of the elements, but I think they're competing for attention. My eye doesn't know where to look first. Perhaps it would help to tone down the black on the popcorn. Maybe a gray would work better. I wish my first submission to Minted was as good as this one. Sadly, it was pretty lame :) Great job!

I think you should remove the stripes in the background and give the photo more prominence in the design.
