A design inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge's second pregnancy. The rich red brings out the royalty while the modern simplicity is a nod to the Duchess herself being a woman of "today". :)

So lovely Nazia! I love the idea of using the duchess as inspiration... I think it definitely feels royal but fresh and modern as well!

Hello Nazia, I do like your design, but one suggestion the filigree on the bottom seems a bit heavy. Maybe move right above the shield would bring more attention to the honored guess? Just a idea to maybe try.

Very sweet. That is great red but I think it would also translate well to other colors, maybe pale pink with black.

Pretty! Would you be able to bump up the font size of the script though? Not by tooooooo much but at the current size it is a bit hard to read. Overall, very nice job though!

Love B and was going to recommend you change the day, time and location like this, but didn't get a chance.

so i like were it's heading! here are my thoughts... take em or leave em ;) lol... i would change the name you're using. this may sound odd, but it feels too short for the space and since you can make up any name you like and in the challenge it's all visual, i would elongate it just so it goes a bit beyond the "a baby shower honoring" line. then i would simplify the date/time/location but putting the date and time on one line with no line separating it (and centered) then below it put the location. hope this helps or at least just gives you another option to play with :)

Love your hand-drawn elements! I'd either skip the border and take the color to the edges or make the border 0.25" to avoid uneven looking cuts (they'd be less obvious with a thicker border). Good luck!

Love the illustrations and I love the bold color. This might work great in a shape.

I love it! Well done. The text in the middle (date, time and place) looks off center a tad bit though. Maybe try nudging it to the left a tiny bit?

Nazia, this is unique, nicely done. I feel like the design needs just a little more white - have you tried looking at a white outline around the edge? Also, consider deleting the state.

Sooo lovely Nazia! (and loofa that rich color)! Tiny sun -- I'd scoot the whole thing up just a teeny bit (there is just a tad more room at top than bottom) :)

Looks great! Only suggestion is to make the script point size at top the same as at bottom. The bottom script looks a few point sizes larger. Great color and modern but classy feel. and I just noticed, you have more "open" space at top, so might want to just nudge everything up a few spaces to have equal top and bottom open space. otherwise - perfect!

Love it! I'd recommend moving up the arrows and hearts to be more centered in their containing shape. Really pretty!

i don't think you need both the 12 and the word noon but i see the balance it brings. wondering if you could eliminate the year and just have the date and time on one side... and on the other side move "the french bakery cafe" to one line and the city, state to the 2nd line? (does that make sense? so now there would just be 2 lines on each side instead of 3). then you could move everything down and give the illustration some breathing room. i might also have the "isla is registered..." all on one line to free up even more space :)
