I love the concept but maybe make the illustration a bit simpler? Does that make sense? I think with the leaves and the road on the bottom especially it looks a little too much like a photograph. Maybe a white border around the edge would clean it up? Just throwing out ideas, sorry for the long speech! :)

I agree with Lisa - I love this concept! It is fresh and fun, and lovely. I also think simplifying it a little would help, and maybe bringing the truck illustration down. The road feels a little too dominant, especially since there's no darker color to balance it out at the top. Maybe playing with a few of those ideas could help. Love it!

Hi Laura, I agree with the other comments. I find the dark area under the truck really dominant at the moment. I think you could loose it altogether or make it much smaller. It is a great concept though & I think you have the makings of a great entry.
