Very cute lettering! The only suggestion is I don't think the bottom text needs to be italicized. The hand lettered words have a lot of movement and a simple and serif font would ground it nicely. Best of luck!

Love it. Agree that the bottom text could just be roman, not italic. It would do well with a small stroke too so the white isn't swallowed up by the black.

So pretty! Love how it stand out on the black. I agree with the others about the italic type. It also feels like it's filling in a bit. Maybe make it a medium weight or give it a small .1 stroke to help it stand off the page a bit better?

Hi Katie, this has a fun feel to it. Nice foil placement, good amount of light and dark gold.
