Thank you so much for all the comments on my first submission! It was so tough to make a font decision and all the input really helped. :)

C is my favorite. I think the script front pairs well with the evergreens.

C. The text layout works very well with the design.

I picked C because the names felt more organic like the foliage. Maybe if you scaled down all of the type and left a little more blank space it would give it a little room to breathe.

C jumped out at me first! I think the scripted text matches the whimsical feel of the design.

I think C, works best. The typography best matches your drawing.

I chose B. I like the simple flowing type with the foliage. They both complement each other yet being distinctive in their own way.

B definitely stands out to me! I like the mix of fonts here and I do think this type works well on the curve :)

I picked C - the fonts feel appropriately casual in relation to the design elements.

I personally love that grey color - but the yellow in a works better with the warmer background. You can make the background a cooler grey and silver if you want to make b work!

Congratulations on your first submission, Colleen! I really like A for the colors. I do agree with Kimberly, though, about maybe changing some of the text that's currently in script to a different, more readable font. I think you probably want the date and time, in particular, to stand out a bit. Good luck!

Hi Colleen, welcome to Minted! Your pine boughs are lovely, and I really like the playful, free-form feel to the type! However, so much type in Bombshell feels a bit overwhelming and hard to read to me. I'm not sure what to suggest, though. Best of luck!
