YES!!! This is beautiful. It's been a fabulous evolution - thanks for letting me push you a bit :) Last little thing is I would make the baby's name one or two points bigger and maybe give it a slight stroke (.1 or .5) to help it stand out a bit more. Oh! And double check that image size - when you save for web it can be 550 pixels on the longest edge. The bigger the better! :)

Hi Summer, love the update to your design. My only concern is how the green text will look on the dark blue background once printed (dark on dark not always the best), especially the bottom line.

This looks awesome as a portrait layout! I'm wondering if there's a way to give a little more focus to that cute photo. Maybe make the "truly blessed" smaller and on one line so you can make the photo bigger? The teal is also an odd contrast, what if you used the same navy as the background but scaled it back to a lighter tint?

Love the new size of the stars. These two colors make it feel almost like two separate designs though. Have you tried it in a vertical layout with the "truly blessed" above the circle? And I'd keep the navy - it's lovely!

I think everything looks great. I love the fonts and design. If you feel its to busy, maybe tone down the photo border a bit? It looks great though.

Lovely font selection, but it seems a bit busy with the stars and botanical elements

Hi Summer, congrats on your first submission! How exciting and what a cute submission it is. Since things look differently on screen than they do printed you may want to do a test print. I do this and I am often surprised just how BIG some things look printed that looked ok on screen. Good luck and have fun!

This is really cute, but I do think I would scale down the stars a bit and maybe some of them could be in the foil too? Just an idea! :)
