Any feedback welcome, especially on the red lettering and on whether the tree illustration is necessary. Thank you!

I think the headline is strong enough to stand on it's own and you don't need the border or the tree in the corner. Really fun idea! Looks like my cat :-)

I agree with Haley, the tree and border are not needed. The copy is great love your choice of words for the picture. I'd play with some other fonts to dress it up a bit if you decide to take out those elements. The signature font could maybe be a tad smaller and I could see moving from down next to the names and mixing fonts either happy holidays in the script and the names in something simpler or vis versa.

Hi MJ! I agree with the others that you could take the tree out. If you wanted to keep the border, though, I'd shrink down the photo and the text to be a smaller section in the center with some nice white space between it and the border. Good luck!

ha! I would remove the red border. Maybe switch the fonts so the red is in the script and the green the quicksand? I'm also wondering how this would look as a full bleed photo - or maybe even a landscape layout with the tree overlapping the photo?

I don't think the tree or border are necessary. You have clever text, I'd maybe bold the red text or chose a more playful font to really make it stand out. Best of luck!

Great copy! I don't think you need the tree.

love the message! Have you tried making the tree lay flat down all the way? to show it knocked over? Just a thought... maybe some random ornament that have fallen off to... I also suggest a bolder font for the stuff in red.

I think you can delete the tree and the border and then just use some really amazing fonts as the design element. I'd also play around with the position of the photo...perhaps a bleed on three sides in a landscape layout with the typography on the left?

I love your clever copy :) I don't think you need the green border; and I think you could make the photo a little shorter. I'd love to see the tree even closer or maybe overlapping the photo - hinting at the pet knocking it over ;)
