Thanks for all of the great feedback ladies!! You've given me a lot of great suggestions for these last minute tweaks! I've got another poll going, hoping to get some last minute input before the challenge closes :)

I like the contrast of the black with the green in A.

Love the "bright" green color. Have you tried it with everything in that color? It may not work, but it's a thought. Good luck on your first challenge! :)

Thank you Jennifer! Removing the border allowed me to rearrange and make the text bigger. Great Suggestion!

That's a great suggestion Loren! I know with letterpress they mentioned one color is best. I gave it a try, attached the picture. What do you think? Is it too bright like that?

Hi Alyssa! I Love this new version without the border and the change in photo! I'm not sure about the version all in one color. You might try puting the customizable text at the bottom in a different color, since that will be digitally printed, not letterpressed. That may help though it might still be a bit much all in one color at the top.

Very cute! The "May your days be" - is it within the guidelines? It seems pretty close to the top, but it's hard to tell. I like the two colors!

Heather - Thank you! I agree, I am not quite ready to make the switch to all one color, going to keep looking at it I think :)

Erin - Yes! I nudged that puppy up as close to the guide as I could without going over :)

Cute!! I really like this as a vertical design! What I liked about the 'all one color' version is that the whole phrase seemed really unified. In this version, the 'may your days be' feels removed from the 'Merry and Bright'... I think it would look great without that first line... just 'Merry and Bright' would look really lovely together. Or, you could try to integrate that line more - maybe have it in an arc above 'merry'? Just some ideas :) This is such a fun design!!

I agree with Snow and Ivy, maybe try removing the first line but I do like it all in one color. I would keep the personalization in a different color though since it will be printed digitally and hard to match. I've done a few polls this challenge and they've been really helpful...maybe you could show a few options to help you pick the final design. If you do decide to do a poll I'd even try a bright magenta to tie into the photo. Looking great though! :)

Very fun! I agree with other Minties about one solid color,since you have a variety of fonts, the 2 color seems choppy, all one solid color will make it look cohesive. :)

love the vertical layout but i'd get rid of the black borders and extend the photo off the edges :)
