Great changes! I'm still a little bit worried about the pixelated edges of the letters. Voters won't know if it's part of the design or if it's just an effect of saving it at a small size...

B. for me - I like that the illustration has a more matte appearance on this. Also I love the way you turned the letter O on it's side!

The car and concept are really cute! I would suggest using only 1 or maybe 2 fonts, so that the focus is on the car. It also looks like the lines aren't very sharp on the lettering. It could be the program you used or maybe just the way you saved it. There are usually very specific directions about how to save things (in the download kit somewhere) that you can reference if you aren't sure :)

I agree with Sarah in regards to decreasing the number of fonts used, and the line quality. I would also suggest rearranging the order of elements, so "you're my love bug is on top," the car is in the middle, and "Happy Valentine's Day," is on the bottom.

Very cute concept! Agree with the others on using less fonts and re-arranging the elements so that the car is more the central focal point.

LOVE the artwork! Very cool! Since the car is so vintage I would like to see that same vintage look carried through to your font choices. By picking one or two fonts and changing the weights, sizes, and locations you can really take this to the next level! Good luck!

Hello Roxanne, your illustration is wonderful! I would like to see either the first line or last line (or maybe both) as all uppercase. good luck.

lovely design!

i would also try the text on an arc above and below so the graphic feels the focal point.
