Hi Carole, this is so pretty! The only thing I would maybe change is the size of the names so they don't compete with the Joy to the world. Great job and best of luck!

Beautiful details carole! I might even make the "to the world" a gold. I'm also wondering if it would help to make the names three lines - there's a lot of negative space in that circle that's just a tiny bit awkward. Maybe bring the "from" a bit closer to the names as well?

Oh my goodness,this is just gorgeous! Love the old world charm to this Carole. I don't think you need to place your name.greetings text at an angle which is creating some tension in a already beautiful design. I'd rather let the design speak for itself. Also,something to try out (but this JMO) what if you had "to the the world" in Burford & the greetings text in Futura. This is a lovely design & I would buy this!

This is really beautiful Carole! The only suggestion I have is to reduce the size of the name copy just a bit so it isn't quite so close to the edge of the circle.

Before I even saw your feedback note I thought the overlapping pines was a but much. I'd also make the JOY a bit smaller so it doesn't crowd the border. Really pretty!

exact same thing Sari said! I might also lose the slight speckling you have on the background, just a plain black will be stronger with everything else going on.
