I think both fonts are a little hard to read on the background. I also feel like there's a bit of a disconnect with the font on the left and right. Some options to play with could be another image, moving the text together on one side or at the top, working with different font colors, etc. Hope that's a little helpful!

I agree with michelle :) I think the font style doesn't connect with each other. It's also hard to read since you changed the color of the photo to sepia :) You can play with the placing of the text :)

I agree with Michelle - I like the font on the right, but it might need a shadow to make it "pop" a bit more - maybe try it all in that font with a shadow behind it?

Love the concept! I'm sure people have some great old photos this could work with. Totally agree about the fonts. I like the direction of the bottom right, but still feels like it could be more handwritten. Font on the left feels too bold and masculine for such a sweet sentiment. Good luck!

Hi Maggie, I agree with the other Minites on trying out some other color/fonts. I think a lovely script/hand written font would look great, especially if you put the verse above the couple. I think it would have more impact.

This photo makes a really great card and the phrase goes well with the brick wall! I would go with a bolder, script font and make use of more of the space near the top. The current font and color is difficult to read and doesn't match the romantic photo. Perhaps try the photo in black and white and use a color for the text? You might want to consider some punctuation or some kind of separation between "true love isn't found" and "it's built."

It's rather difficult to read the text on this image. I would perhaps make a space on top for the quote and do not use "all caps" since this often insinuates yelling :) Lovely quote.
