Does this script work better than the original? Should the stripes be faded more to be even more subtle?

Love the message. Very clever. The stripes seem good to me. I agree with others that the script font could be a bit bolder, perhaps by adding .1 or .2 stroke. I would tweak the right edge of the photo to get rid of that tiny bit of red blanket. At first glance, I thought the stripe wasn't straight, but it's the blanket showing.

I think the stripes are subtle enough.

I think this new script works nicely- it's more fun. I would keep the three lines of the script text the same point size rather than worrying about aligning them. I also don't think Holiday needs to be initial capped. The stripes look great!

awe this is really cute! i'm not sure you even need the stripes at all but if you like them, keep them! i'm wondering what it would look like if your script somehow intertwined with the peace and joy?!?! do you have business penmanship? that might have some flowing lines that would work. :) oh and if you like the idea of stripes, you could always do a solid background and stripe the word(s) joy and peace with either shaded of red or even go bold like red and pink ;)

Hi Chelsea - I think that script is better, perhaps add some weight to it so it's easier to read. It also fits the fun message better feeling less formal. Stripes are good in my opinion. Good luck!

Awesome message! I think the script and non-script font go very well together--they compliment each other. As for the colors, I think it's great as-is. I wouldn't change a thing!

Hi Chelsea, Designs are going to print darker than they look on screen, with this is mind you may want to do a test print and adjust your colors. If you've done a test print and it looks fine then disregard. The white text may benefit from a .1 stroke for readability. : )

Love those red stripes! I'm finding the script a little hard to read, but it might be the image size - double check your settings, this feels a little smaller than the 550 pixels it can be.
