comments from Katie:

For the pattern lover, this hand drawn illustration is a great light background, something to really help make your image "pop". Features a clean white border to add a custom salutation!

LOVE the frame design but agree trying a different photo. I'd like to see a family or couple photo. The font seems a tad small and tight. Try tracking out your font and simplify the greeting.

I like version two! I think this scripty face is competing with the illustration a bit. Also this photo has great colors and light but it seems an odd choice for a single photo layout. As the person getting the card I want to see those babies big smiles first! :)

Hi Katie, With the photo centered and your foil above and below centered, I lean toward making the text centered, just to maintain the visual.

Really pretty! I might just move the clipping mask a little bit to the right so that you can more easily see the detail in the upper left corner.

Very pretty! I agree with Haley about moving the texture a bit so you don't get quite as many highlights in the corner. I might also add some extra tracking/letter spacing to the type just to compliment the rest of the great space you have throughout the piece.

Katie, the foiled pattern is really great but I think the design could be improved by working on the text treatment. I think it needs the kerning to be increased quite a bit and I would also decrease the font size a point or two.
