I'm actually liking the 5th color way as it has more contrasting colors! That followed by B.

Hi Nazia, I think you've come along way with your design and it looks clean and fun! I know you wanted the organic flower shapes to come around the oval, but maybe that's another design idea for another card? I would still get in between your let's meet emma type and fix the bits and pieces of type that don't meet -mainly all of the 'e' letters. you really have to play with it to get it just right with this typeface. looking very nice!

This looks great. The oval shape makes it clean and simple while maintaining the artistic nature of the flowers.

hi Nazia, I just saw your post on facebook. I see what you mean. I would go back to the florals on v11. If there are some areas you are not liking because they are going into the white too much, maybe delete them and fill in with tiny dots, like you have in your design already. I would keep the larger oval shape though. Hope this helps. Your type looks great.

I think this looks great, Nazia and I love the shape. I would look at the emmascript type (as Carol suggested), a little closer. It looks a teeny bit jagged.

This is so cute, Nazia. I see what you mean about the oval. I'd use that as a guide and agree with Monica. Use fillers as needed to retain the shape. Nice job!

I think the changes you made feel like they work with the organic nature of the flowers, Nazia! I still feel like the center is crowded. Can you push the flowers away just a bit more to let it breathe? I would get in between each letter of the headline and make sure the letters connect exactly. I might take it down a point or two, too. Looking good!

This is coming along just great! You've had so much awesome feedback. I think I agree with carol that the middle could use a bit more white space. I'd either try making the center a bit bigger or try screening the flowers back (making them lighter in color) so that they fade a bit more into the back and let the type jump out first.

This is looking great, Nazia! Love the illustrations and color palette. It looks like "Lets meet Emma" is just slightly off center to me. Also I would make the spacing even between the date/time, address and RSVP.

I love the changes you made! this is so pretty! The only thing I noticed and maybe its just me but I read "meet emma jane" as being the whole name. It took me a second. Maybe you could put "meet" in smaller type above emma jane. The emma script font goes so nicely with your florals!

I think A. What pops to me are the flowers at the bottom of the circle - the leaves pop up toward the text. No other place in the circle do leaves pop out that much, so i'd suggest editing. Might want to try scaling the text down a touch - if you notice, you have more room at top above "meet emma jane" than at bottom so it's not balancing...almost there!

I like the fullness of the flowers in A - very pretty! The type feels a bit unbalanced though - what if you break the copy into 2 paragraphs that are side by side so it fills out the space horizontally? the registry line can be one line below the 2 paragraphs. Just a thought, ignore it if doesn't look good! ;)

I like B and D but slightly prefer B a little more. Seems sweeter for a meet and greet of a new baby girl.

Hi - love the detail and your florals - so pretty! The negative space is throwing me off a little bit because of the lack of shape. This might be a lot of work, but if you keep one of these versions, what about turning the white space into a silhouette of a bunny or something like that? Otherwise I might go back to the first version or do a simple, uniform floral border on all edges :)

yeah i would go for the uniform floral border on all the sides... like how you have it along the bottom right corners near the text! (just kinds of a hint of it. that's what i was trying to say earlier but i don't think i explained it very well! and i like the fonts in B and D but when you get the flower frame around all of the edges you should have a really nice amount of white space in the middle to center your info. keep going nazia... it'll get there :)

I voted for D. I agree with some of the other comments. I think I would either go back to an earlier version where the corners are left open, or, make the frame more uniform around all four edges, so the white space is a rectangular shape rather than diagonal. If you went back to one of your earlier versions, I would love to see the bottom, inside edge of the florals be broken up a bit more like it is on the top, inside edge. The line on the top isn't such a hard line edge, it's softer, more organic, and suits the illustration really nicely.

The details of the flowers is amazing!! And the colors do work nicely together. I do agree with the others tho - the white space has no defined shape and I think in this instance needs to be defined - whether as a shape like a bunny or as an even border all around. As a suggestion you could try an inner white scallop box on top of the florals to mirror the diecut edges. I think i definitely prefer the fotn of B for the name to go with the sweet flowers ;)

D. Really great concept, I love the dainty florals and colors, very pretty. I am unsure about the font but the Naive came close to what I would like to see, I would consider looking at script like fonts, I am not a fan of Emma as it does not match your fine details in the border. I agree with Erica the white space is confusing and seeing some sort of definable shape would be a hit. I like full border all around the edge but I am not so sure about the special shape, it might be too busy.

I'd have to say B. The font used is more cohesive with your design. The flowers consist of thick, rounded line work; which makes perfect sense to pair it with a font that has a similar aesthetic.

A for me. I think the type pops more here. i would prefer a solid serif for the name because the weight of the naive feels too similar to the illustration. You could use some contrast. I might also push the top section up more so there is less [or eliminate it] The type feels a little crowded. Pretty illustration!

I like B. Wondering what it would look like if the floral design went all the way around the scalloped edges slightly and the text was centered?!?!
