I removed the dots at the bottom. Thoughts? Revised alternate colorway below.

I like this design a lot Kayla but the brown dots seem like an interruption to me. Probably just me. Nice work.

Love this! I agree with Susan. The line of brown dots seems a little jarring to me, and I think it might be better without it.
