this is pure magic -- LOOOOVE the combo of balloons, tassels, banner, outline type and thick white frame. obsessed with this card! the color of the balloons is so fresh and unique, reminiscent of a clay pot... at first in the thumbnail the color made it take a little longer to see them as balloons, but in the big view it reads better. have you looked at "weclome" sitting on a 3rd line so that it mirrors the negative space a bit more. no worries either way tho. love! Love!! LOVE!!!

great concept! have you considered adding a transparency effect to the balloons? your design is very airy, but the balloons as is are very heavy.

Lovely design. I agree with Brandy about the transparency and weight of the balloons. Maybe if they weren't perfectly round they might help too.

I am with Ann and Brandy on the transparency of the ballons. I think the streamers are lovely though. great concept.
