comments from Stacey:

This soft wintery scene is the perfect precursor to the seasons first snow. When all the trees have shed their leaves and just a few little birdies have yet to fly south.

Is the texture on the back too heavy now?? I can lighten it up a bit?

Absolutely LOVE this! Love your illustration! I think I kind of like the back without the texture, but either way, this is really great! :)

I like your illustration and colors on the front! The back is a bit dark for someone to write on (unless they have a gel pen of some sort.) Did you try using the orange or blue on the back? Not sure you need the tree outlines either. Maybe repeat one tree and a bird instead to tie the front and back together or a simple pattern using your colors?

Thanks Ann. I had thought the same thing about the dark background but thought if they had a silver sharpie or gel pen it would work, although I still wasn't convinced so I will definitely play around with it some more. Thanks for the input. I thought about a polk-a-dot pattern to mimic the monogram shape but really screened back. Might be nice on the orange like you suggested.
