A fun and springy gift for a mom..especially one who is a gardener! Some curvilinear text to the name adds a little fun too.

thanks Jen! I liked the yellow too, but I'm also a sucker for turquoise. If this design is picked, i'll def use the yellow as an alternate colorway!

maybe try a textured overlay? i think you should increase the opacity of the shape behind "mom" so that it isn't competing with the background. maybe consider adding a variable element like under "mom" a path of text that follows the shape of the word to put in her actual name. love the illustrations!

Any suggestions how to improve this? maybe a subtle background texture? I like my illustrations, but it doesn't quite feel finished yet..
