Hey Melanie! That was actually Amy (Design Lotus) that left the comment about the stems :o), but I do think they look better with the added white space between the bottom of the stems and the name. :o)

love the colors. I might move the heart stems up so there's a little white space between the name and stems.

Thanks ladies :) @Lehan you know I've moved those darn stems up and down so many times, lol - but you're right, they are a bit too close. I want them to look like they're growing out of the family's last name (if that makes any sense at all)... but without being too cramped. I appreciate your input - I think I'll nudge them up a bit :)
