So I think the consensus was the balloons were too much. How about one balloon? =) Thanks for the feedback, Minties!

Yey one balloon! This looks great. I agree with Kim about losing the comma after birthday. Beautiful work!

Cute illustration and color palette! Have you thought about losing the balloons and just having the fox be the centerpiece? I feel like everything is kind of crammed at the bottom.

What a neat illustration! If I were you, I'd pick a super simple font and let the illustration be the focal point.

Gorgeous! Your simple type work goes well with the illustration. I'm just finding the balloons too heavy. I wouldn't mind seeing it without the balloons or maybe a softer colour palette?

Oh I forgot to mention. Maybe the body text could be a point bigger too.

Thanks so much for the comments! I'll play around with the color palette and balloons some more. Think I need to sleep on it. =)
