Ok, I've moved to the gray scallop and need opinions on what shade, this darker shade or the lighter one in the photo attached?

very nice Stacey! I personally prefer the darker shade b/c it seems to bring out the bold accents of the floral elements and draw your eye down to the name/information.

Feels like it should be an element from something above. A little twig or something organic to mimic. It feels like its competing with what you've done with the lovey organic frame around the photo.

I think I agree with That Girl's comment below - go with that leafy branch from above (to replace the scalloped line) instead! I also think I'd like the name in black or grey to match the rest...

I love this!! Maybe a more contrasting font for Ansley? It feels a bit too modern for your whimsical florals.

This is really nice! Your illustration is lovely! The scalloped line is a bit heavy though. Maybe use the gray or green instead of the black?

Revised scallop element attached below. Let me know which you guys prefer. I lightened it up by using an outline per Ann's feedback that it was a bit heavy. I kind of like it but I also still like how the weight of the original grounds the design. I can easily be swayed either way based on mintie feedback. Thx.

Stacey - I like the filled in version best, but maybe Ann's suggestion of using the medium grey for it may work?

I love the illustration! Have you tried it without the scalloped line? I may be in the minority here, but I'm not sure you even need it. The illustration carries the layout.

Very cute! I think I prefer the original scallop but both work. Love the color scheme!
