Thanks for the suggestions! I took out a row of chevrons and added more white space. I also added a small white border around the photo. I think it looks better! Thanks!

I like your chevron pattern - very sweet :) I would maybe nudge everything up a bit to give the type a bit more room?

I agree with Melanie. Love the chevrons, the color, the use of Lobster Two, but the text at the bottom looks a little cramped and close to the edge. Maybe knock out one row of chevrons and scoot things around to add some white space?

cuteness. ditto on nixing the last row of zigzags and shifting the text up. might try adding a white border around the photo so it feels more integrated into the design.
