Thanks, Everyone! I took Wondercloud's advice and gave more space to the photo. I do think I prefer it this way, but an still vacillating a bit. Let me know what you think...

Love it. I think it's a bit more interesting this way. And I think new parents will appreciate as much room as possible for the photo of their little one :)

Thanks, Ladies! I appreciate the kind and helpful comments. I gave the boats a touch more breathing room and did a little more kerning as well.

I love all the little details of your work set forth with such strong graphic presence. Very inspiring.

Love both of these, Karen! Really beautiful type and illustrations. I'm wondering what it would look like if the proportions weren't 50/50? I think if the photo took up a little more space than the graphics it might add an extra layer of visual interest. Though I also love the nice even space around the graphic right now, so I don't know...just a thought :)

Very cute, Karen! I really like the girly version too! My teensy eensy little suggestion would be to nudge up the "please join..." just a tad. It feels a little too tight against the graphic.
