This one photo Christmas card uses colors of ice cream as the fun accent to your photograph. Reminiscent of days gone by these colors and polka dots give you a fun place to display your family photo.

Hi Laura, Thank you for letting me know you've update your design. Much more appealing! Your cute design makes the traditional colors fun. I don't think you need the pipe "|" after the reeds. I hope you are having fun!

Hi Laura . . . very creative layout. I do suggest however that you try a darker shade of green because the current shade is making the red text difficult to read.

Hi Laura, I like your fun design. I'd play with the color. Keep readability in mind, things are always brighter on a computer screen so if you are able test print your designs.

Agree with the other comments – change the colors – red and green hurt your eyes when the shade is so similar. Consider a different font for Merry Christmas – I think that one is a little too Halloween looking to me. I would also capitalize the "C" in the Christmas.

I agree with the comments below. You definitely need a better contrast between the Red and green!
