Something is missing? Imbalanced text between top & bottom?

Hello all! Thanks for the great feedback =) How do things feel now? I definitely prefer this over the first version. Still feel like I could strike a better balance between the top & bottom text, but not sure how. Le sigh. Any ideas? Or am I just overthinking this now? =/

Hi LIng! Thanks for pinging me. Your update looks more balanced with the sans serif at the top, and the bottom text filling up the space a bit more looks great. I'm wondering if the "warm wishes" just a point or two smaller would give it even more of that balanced feel? For me, that dazzling border is the focus. Love this, gets my vote!!

The geos feel a bit too big. I might try scaling them down in place by 50%.

Hmmm, interesting! I sized it down once already, but I will give it another try =) Thanks Amy!

Hi Ling, this is a cool design. The difference in size between the WARMEST WISHES and the bottom text could be more balanced. The design is a little top heavy.

Thanks for validating my concern, Debb! I do feel it's top heavy as well, but I sort of hit a wall staring at this thing all day. Playing around with some other fonts now that I've had a break from it. Will post an update soon =) Thanks!

With the cool geometric design, I think a sans serif might be better for the top text.
