comments from Katie:

Rough brush strokes will break the frame of this simple design, adding a "handmade" element.

thoughts? I know that there has been some critique on the border, but i think it adds something geometric to a very organic look.

I love your border! But I would change the font for the names and add tracking. It needs to breath a little bit and feel more modern. Try all uppercase for Happy Holidays and lower case for names and loose the brackets for the date maybe just a bar line.

The border and paint strokes look really nice :) I feel like the type is a bit disconnected from the rest of the piece. Maybe all in one line along the bottom line of the frame? Maybe white would help it stand off the page more?

Really pretty! I like the border - I think you're right; it gives the whole layout a little more structure. I would maybe use Bodoni regular instead of the bold - it feels a little harsh and I think a more delicate type would pair better with the foil paint strokes.
