oh andres.... this design feels thrown together - there's no real hierarchy to it, its just text and a leaf sitting on the page. nothing is relating to one another. and this design is so not you. that being said, i like whats happening inside the leaf - that delicate dotted line work is nice, i want more of it.

yes! thanks for the REAL feedback annie. (thanks but no thanks allison..just kidding!) I definitely threw it together from a concept and didnt flesh it out enough. But that was my plan! I wanted to post and get some real feedback. And it worked! thanks for the help.

keep the colors. i like the vintage feel to it, but am NOT a fan of the leaf at all. a leaf doesn't say anything about any couple.

The colors, and the yellowing of the edge really caught my eye.

Updated the broadside with a new design. I agreed with you all about the leaf and the boring. Thought i would still try something different. Thanks again for the good crit!

gorgeous and unique! i would actually buy this. it's so elegant, and the colors you've chosen with the vintage-like wash over the whole card presents it in a very stylized way. great great work andres!

funny story. a friend of mine was all set to buy a floral-printed sofa once, when i asked her about the image of the cute little cocker spaniel dead center on each and every sofa cushion. once i pointed it out, she couldn't see the flowers anymore, only the little dog. the sofa salesman was soo pissed at me... okay, so what's with the big bearded guy in a cape with two lines of snot dangling way long out of his nose? seriously, thanks again for taking the time to give feedback. i appreciate it more than i can tell you. really. i'm not just saying that. i really mean it.
