I really like the typography, but I disagree on the colors... the mustard color is kind of... somber. Maybe it's because it's paired with a bright color that I'm reading it that way... maybe charcoal for a substitute? It's also sophisticated but might work a little better with the type color choices :)

This is really cool Emily! I love what you did with the type at the bottom. It's got a real cool vintage yet modern feel. However, I have to agree with Maddy on the colors. Maybe something more subtle for the background that allows the type to really pop? Great job!

thanks for the feedback guys! I really do love the colors as they are, sort of off-beat and dynamic. I wanted the color to really shout. That said, I'm open to trying another color option and see if it's better received! I'll post a new version soon :)

Well, I am a huge fan of Chartreuse so no complaints there. I just thought the .999 in the original was being overwhelmed by the background color. What about a light cool gray and maybe adding color to the name and date (I think it was that way before)? Having said that, you gotta go with your gut too... Obviously hasn't failed you before ;)

Kerry - it was a color in the background she changed. I like this color combo a lot more!

Sweet! I like this new color combo, but I still like the old one as an alternative. :) The original version really stood out, and I think it would have looked even better printed. Anyhow, I still love it - too bad I just had my 30th... ;)

well, I really liked the original version, so I've gone back! Thank you all so much for your suggestions though, I'm glad I tried something different!

I think the colors and design look great. But the "9's" are confusing because of the descenders. i'm not getting that its 29.999, it looks like 29•999. So maybe try a different typeface?

I definitely prefer the mustard and pinks--a good choice to go back to the original ; )
