Too bold?

The colors are a little bold for me. I'm thinking shades of pink and red, with some white mixed in would work.

Heide, I do agree with Sara a bit . . . this a great pattern but I think maybe you should try it in softer/pastel tones since the challenge has kids on the forefront. Maybe a Poll?

Thanks Sara and Oma, I will try a poll. I like the colors but feel they are too poppy for the category.

Hi Heide! I also think that colors are a little bit bold. And what about the stroke on the elements? I think it might also look beautiful without them. Now they are a bit thin and not very noticeable. But if you make them thicker I'm not sure that it will look good. Maybe just as an option it possible to try the variant without the stroke at all?

I like the colors individually, but they are all of a similar tone and hence the pink is a little "clashy" with the red and purple - I might try to mess around with the pink color and see what other options might work better with the stripes, which are great!

I really like this unique design. I do agree the colors are a little bold but I think you could just change the red to white, or something similar, and be able to pull off the children's category.

I like all of the above colors, but would like to see one highlighted, and let it shine along other muted hues. Right now they seem to compete, and none of them get to stand out!

I like your design and colors Heide, but would consider just trying a white within for a more clean look.
