This is a lot better. Although I initially said no background texture I think this subtle one works really well! I can see why you needed it in the design. Great changes Stephanie.

Hey, this is super sweet for a little ballerina. I just wish the shade of brown was a tad deeper so that it was easier to read and her hair contrasted with the background a smidge more. It's a bit of a yellowish brown right now an dI want it to be more chocolate. Just a thought. Still really sweet either way.

Thanks Stacy! yeah I have been wondering about my colors my laptop screen or video card is giving me lines and a white overlay over my screen need a new one soon hopefully I find a job soon so I can get a new one before this goes out.. do you all use the pantone cards to truly know what your colors will look like? i know they are not in my budget right now but just wondering how you all work with your colors?

looks great! I would put a little more space above and below the name to give it some room (maybe by pulling the all the other text lines closer together?)

also, Dearest Swash looks good - you could always find a free script font, if there's one you like better - Minted would then either use it (if it is free for commercial use) or substitute it for a close match...

Very sweet! Do you think for color changes you would have a blond and a redhead too? Fonts look very nice.

Cool design! I would totally order this for my daughters birthday!

T on Jan 26, 2012 at 7:43pm

I love this! I'd suggest moving it up on the page and placing a return before and after the name for a bit more room. Great job!!

Super cute ballerina and very sweet border! I like the changes, too! I think Dearest works better, and this may just be me, but maybe use all lowercase letters for her name to provide a little more visual room? Also, if you remove "at" before "jumping" and the zip code then it might give you more tracking room for all of the copy. :o)

Precious! I'd say the script still isn't fitting with the feel of the invite. I think something a little softer and more whimsical (but not too crazy) would complement the sweet ballerina and scalloped edges.

not sure how i feel about the text still its bugging me.. not sure if i like the sheer beauty.. but i lightened the background so its almost not visable I wanted some kind of texture.. I also made the ballerina slightly transparent and changed the color.. suggestions much appreciated on the text for sure.. Thank You All for your help

Your text looks much better! I'm thinking the Sheer Beauty looks a little grown-up, though - I'm not sure which script to suggest (maybe Adios?), but I like the idea of script for her name. It also looks to me that the kerning varies from line to line - I would select all the printed font and change it to one number. The background looks better now and I like your text all brown as in this version. Great job!

LOVE all the artwork, colors and borders. One critique, though - I wish the text was more uniform in sizing. I'd rather see it centered than full-justified, so the date/address/rsvp etc. can be all the same size. That may just be me...hopefully, you'll get more opinions on that!

I totally love this one! I agree with Kim on the text. I personally don't think you need the textured lines on the background (for me it takes away from the super cute border) but my design aesthetic is more basic than others! Great job!

Gorgeous illustration Stephanie. I agree with the girls about the text. Also agree with Kimberly in regards to the texture background. I wouldn't mind seeing a plain background with that gorgeous border. Great job!
