Love this revised version, Heather! It looks a lot cleaner with the white background.

Heather, I think this is adorable but might pop more on a white background. Just a thought

This is really cute, Heather! Your illustration is great and I love all the little details. What if you reduced the size of the books a bit? Right now the books and the Baby Shower copy are competing, I think if you reduced the book size it might help with the visual hierarchy.

great colors, Heather! I love that little elephant! I agree with Olivia's thoughts on reducing the size of the illustration so there's a bit more of a sense of visual hierarchy. I also would like to suggest increasing the leading on the copy at the bottom a bit. I think this will allow the piece to breathe a bit more. BEAUTIFUL work though!
