Laurie, the design is improving—good job! The text rag and line breaks of some text are odd. For example, "Mr. & Mrs." and "Jarret" are broken oddly. Maybe keep it as one line that runs on the top or bottom or change it to something like "The Jarret Family Kitchen"— up to you. Another odd break is "1. Pour sugar and everything...", The "well" on the following line is left alone hanging there and that is distracting. Honestly, "Mix well" could be a line of it's own before "Put bun into..". For extra room, try putting the list of ingredients into two columns on top. Or edit down some copy. Thank you for the positive response and I am pleased you are finding my feedback helpful and not thinking I'm a nag—Good luck:)

Clever idea! I feel this card could resemble a recipe card by utilizing the rounded edge or scallop template. There are many shapes going on. I am not sure if it's necessary to mask the photo in an oval. It can be can be masked in the scalloped shape behind it—if you choose not to use the shaped templates. Also is there a reason why you chose not to leave a space for the baby's name? Either way, great work, sure looks like you are having fun!
