I think the composition in C works best.

Loving C! Maybe try a version with the MEOW in color like the original design. For the party info, maybe have the "name is two" in two lines, a bit bigger...and have the time in the same line as the date? Same with the RSVP, it may give you more room to play if you have that in one line.

I like the layout in C but I think it would be better with some color.

Cute! I feel like the Meow and the cat head are too disconnected. I think you should mess around with the layout to get a better sense of flow with these two elements interacting! Maybe the meow on top of the cat head and add a cute little speech bubble around it?

I agree with Rebecca. It's a bit disjointed. Maybe meow is too bright. Muted colors might work better with this layout. I love the cat and the playfulness of the type within the cats head and that it's not fussy.

I LOVE this! The design is quirky and fun and is definitely something I would purchase! Maybe you can make the background a paler color, or keep it a nice wishy-washy white and make the MEOW pop and match the cat head so the two are relatable. Other than that, fantastic job and keep up the great work!

Very cute! Maybe try the portrait layout? Also, keep in mind that the name of the child may be longer than 4 characters. Per the brief in this contest "Designs should accommodate average-length names (about 20 characters for a full name)"

Love the kitty design. I agree that switching to portrait and putting the 'Meow' text horizontally across the top of the page (as opposed to having the text vertically stacked) would make the overall design more unified.

What about putting MEOW in a speech bubble to make it more connected?

Cute kitty silhouette and love the meow font. I agree different layout would be nice for this design as well. I wonder how it would look on the tag or scallop circle with the meow on a curvilinear path.

I think the concept is really cute. However, I think the cat is too dark compared to the bright colors of the rest of the design. I also agree with Rebecca that the meow and the cat are too far apart.

Is there a way to bring the Meow and cat together in the design. Maybe work some of the color to the left into your first line?

I would use the die cut circle shape, put the cat in the middle with meow either above or below. I really think this is cute.

try adjusting the leading of the text so it does not overlap with each other.

I also agree with Rebecca. The MEOW is too disconnected with the cat head. Try placing it on top of the head where there's space and maybe use a circular die-cut to make it look better. Also, a different color for MEOW wouldn't hurt. The bright colors and the dark cat head doesn't seem to match. But other than that, I love the cat head :)
