What a sweet illustration! You might look at tightening up the leading on the type block and pulling the header and illustration down. Right now, it's taking up more visual space than your wonderful illustration.

Super cute, Giselle! I agree with Griffenbell about the text. Then you can maybe enlarge the cute little fox a bit, too! Really adorable! :)

Nice changes Giselle... I think the white portion is still getting a little lost as Ann mentioned. And maybe match the color of the nose/texture with the drum stick? BTW I love the fox's outfit!

so cute giselle! i really like what you did with the texture/pattern behind the fox. it's such a nice little subtle pop of color! i think you could make the mom's name a little larger and tighten up the space up a tiny bit between join us and in honor of as well as the address info and rsvp line.

the fox is so adorable! i agree with rachel about the spacing. and maybe the rsvp line is a little smalelr than everything else. also, add a comma after Saturday and upper case the A in August and the S in street. Super cute start!

Cute Giselle! I agree with comments below as well as maybe defining the ends of the ribbon with a slightly darker blue/green colour. Can't wait to see the revisions.

I love your fox illustration Giselle! Agree with Ann... maybe the nose can be brown? And maybe a darker blue on the ends of the ribbon (where it wraps) if that makes sense...Also agree with Rachel's suggestion on an enlarged name :)

I love your fox illustration!! That is too cute. I think the type needs some tweaking, maybe some more kerning and increase the leading between the lines but decrease the spacing between paragraphs. I hope I am making sense, I haven't had coffee yet. :o) Great start Giselle!!

This is totally cute, Giselle! It might just be my computer but the white part of the fox is getting lost against the light blue background. Maybe darken it just a tad?
