Does it look too dull now? I feel like it's lost a lot of personality. What do you think?

Ahhh! What happened to the little mouse face. I loved it! Bring it back!!! Bring it back now...I'm sad! (But I do like the orange bar gone.)

This is so cute! In my opinion, I think you could amp up the holiday vibe/festiveness (maybe with a less subtle green color?) But the idea and illustration is adorable!

Love this idea! Very clever. I don't think you need the mouse face/ears on the mouse. I think it will still read and be more modern. Just my two cents! :)

Taking what Susan has suggested, what do you think - lose the face on the mouse and keep it simple?

I think it works without the face and ears. Cute idea!

Carol, I like it without the face/ears... but I'm hoping you can get other opinions before the deadline. Also, I really like your color palette! :)

I'm gazing at it more...have you tried it without the orange band behind "not even a". I don't think you need it. Just a thought. Still LOVE it!

jeez, thanks for the kudos everyone! I was struggling all week to think of something that wasn't staring back at me on the site, and this is actually a concept I produced for my own holiday mailer a few years back. Much different here, though. Check it out on my website sometime under the Score, Fold and Diecut section. Get a good chuckle!
