Would love some feedback ... I started this design for a Bride ... she loved the proof of the invite and accommodation card, but then she went MIA before paying me. I'm fond of the design so I thought I'd enter this. I'm thinking other color options could be a deep blue and of course black. Thanks in advance.

I love the lace pattern and your color choices -- especially the purple. What needs fine tuning is your typography to make this design shine. I recommend increasing your leading for the serif font as well as the kerning. You could easily make more space by simplifying the wording. Center the "and". Carolina Pro has beautiful glyphs. I'd use them for the uppercase letters on the names.

Love the darker color and the contrast with the light lace. the "and" looks off center but minor point there. Nice work!

Just lovely! I love the lace. Could we see different color options in a poll? By the way, I love your wording!

i like A but i don't think you need that overlay on top of the lace (it feels very distracting to me)... :)

i would move the lace detail down (maybe about half of what it is now) that way you can scoot your type down and give the whole design some breathing room. maybe try it on the kraft paper in the submission kit as well. good luck :)

Looks beautiful I agree the lace can come down a bit and maybe add a contrasting color?

Is it possible for you to upload a bigger image? From what I can see, the white box with type seems a bit out of place..Like Jennifer previously mentioned, maybe lowering the lace down a bit and adding the content in the white box at the bottom without the white box. Hope that makes sense :)

I haven't submitted designs in a long time so I'm not sure how to upload a new image. I did notice that my image was small too ... I will try to fix it. Thanks for your suggestions.
