Okay guys, here's the original and an option with a more simplified font both still keeping the bold brush stroke that polls so well. I tried combining the script font with the bold slash and it just looked all over the place. I couldn't even post it here because my gut just said it was wrong. What do you think of the new lighter text? Or are you still feeling the original? Thanks!!

I chose B! I love the way the simplified text looks. (But that's probably no surprise given my last comment, haha!)

OK guys, I've kept the feminine color + gold but mixed up the fonts a bit as suggested and taken down the stripe to prevent it from overwhelming the new more feminine font (Octavia Script). Do you like the new option, B? Does anyone have a font suggestion for the "from the desk of" and last name that is less hand-drawn than Naive Inline but still has the wonderful strong + ultra light strokes? Or does the hand-drawn-ness not bother you? Thanks!!

So you can get an up close look at B and the Native Inline font:

I like the thicker foil on the left, though maybe the font from option B is better.

I chose A - the text in this version is easily readable and I find the text of B distracts a bit from the brushed line of gold. You might consider simplifying the text a bit more even.

Can you combine the two? I love the foiled stroke on A, but the typography is so pretty on B.

I like A but I would play around with some different font options for the name :)

I like the slanted version, so A for me. Good luck!

I think the angle on the bottom adds more interest to the piece as a whole. :)

Love the simplicity of B – but also like the gold stroke with the pink in A.

I think I like C - looks like a smudge of charcoal.

I've chosen option A beacuse I find the B variant a little bit simple, and the third one has too intense stripe. The first one has beautiful foil texture which perfectly matches to the tender rose color.

I chose A, I am drawn towards the gold and soft pink. The colors make it very feminine, but then I feel like the font is a bit too bold to fit. I would love to see option A with more font options. The current font fits well with option B (without the gold).

B was my first choice and A was #2. I like the simplicity of B but I also like the gold wash in A!

I chose the simpler version, B. However, there was not one version I did not like. The black streak works well, as well as the golden one.
