changed the "Wishing your company...." text font to Old Claude... I tested that line with other swirly fonts but couldn't achieve a good balance... So I simplified it and feel that less might be more for that line... let me know your thoughts on the swirls, to keep? or not to keep?

edited the wreath (added ribbon to the bow), simplified the swirls, and spaced out the text to make it more breathable... :) let me know your thoughts...

I really love this! Your subtle details are great :) Just being nit-picky now - I'm not crazy about the Albemarle Swash, especially the "th" combo. I'm wondering if there is another font that will still give you the swashy feel, but would have more alternate characters for everything to fit together a little smoother.

Fine tuned the bottom details, and added some "Bickham Script" ornaments swirls to complement Albemarle Swash type. :)

i love the changes you've made to this in the past few hours :) i think the design is sitting/weighing a little bit heavy in the space right now, have you tried maybe moving it up a little bit & spacing out the text just a tad bit more (not overdoing it but just giving it a little bit of air--i think the text under the design could be moved closer to the design, and the swirls below the last line of text could be moved down, and then the whole design up on the page a tad bit)

I like your cityscape, Angelene! I would add a business name (who it's from) at the bottom and, maybe, the year.
