This is a fun spring Save-the-Date that takes its influence from letterpress poster design.

"Spring" seems a little confined, and I'd have liked to see "Save the Date" a little more white to read it better. The ring illustration doesn't seem to match with the theme of the invitation.

Oh... disagree. This is fantastic. I love the overlapping letterforms in "spring". The varying color differentials it causes are really interesting. It's supposed to look letterpressed or screenprinted. The composition is great, and the ring illustration is very cool, in keeping with the style. This is a 5, for sure.

Love it! I agree with the previous commenter - the color scheme is awesome and the ring illustration is the perfect touch! Great job!

I agree with Shane and Katie Beth. I could read immediately that it said "Spring" and it jumped right off the page even with the soft colors. Very nice! Very clean and open. The ring adds a little zing to it. Love it!
