Hummm, have you tried white outlining or not outling the boots? Since you have a dark bkg I do not think you need the dark outline. That part seems off since nothing else is outlined...maybe make the boots bigger and logo slightly smaller? I know the logos were Minted provided but I'd say to clean up the outline around the logo for voting. That white just looks jagged. Or Maybe outline in black to clean it up? Maybe try using the rounded corners template to match with the rounded toe of the boots and Happy Holidays font? Super fun design!! Hope this helps!

Kim, I have always liked this one. Only thing I might try is the Jackson Square in caps, but not necessary and this is super fun. :)

I'm kind of feeling simplified layout and fonts in version 1, but I like the boots and color of the current one.

Love the update with the boots illustration and the type, Kim! I think I preferred the portrait orientation - it felt more balanced (plus square do not sell nearly as well) Such a fun design!
