Changed the font for the name/date to Futura (it seemed cleaner with the other fonts)...

thinned the white frames around the photos (they seemed too heavy in comparison to the Business Penmanship to me)

Changed the greeting to just "merrily merrily," removed the sketched black outlines from the illustration, darkened the third holly leaf. Feedback appreciated!

Hey Kim - per your forum post, I don't think it's too formal for the concept! It's clean and streamlined, the script is perfect with the waves. Love the color too! :o)

Thanks for your comments, Smeeta and Katherine! I feel like this may be a stronger design - still in the holiday spirit without the holly and simpler...feedback appreciated!! :)
