Okay, trying this in warmer colors, with stronger type on the bottom. Thanks for the feedback!

Like your changes! I'd probably lose the upper greeting now, too.

hi, I like the tie in with a sweater and your patterns, with exception to the last one - the other three feel kind of folky while this one feels a little medieval. I was also thinking since you're saying 'warm greetings' why not mix some warmer colors -tans, greens, russet- with red instead of the cold blue? I'd try a stronger font to hold up against your patterns too. The line weight is too think here. Just some thoughts...

I love your pattern - very nice! I'm also curious as to how this would look in richer, warmer colour palette :)
