How fun! I love it. Love your type, banner, plaid and illustration - those ants are too cute! I would find a way to make the plaid end at the same spot in the pattern all around the edges of the inside white rectangle, so the edge looks consistent. Also, I would extend the plaid all the way to the edges. One more thing, I would remake your white rounded rectangle so that the corners are rounded evenly - maybe draw a regular rectangle and round the corners under the "filters" menu, so you can control the radii on the corners. Welcome to Minted and best of luck to you!

One more suggestion - maybe shrink the "Cordially invite you to their picnic wedding" a little to put more white space on either side. And maybe shrink the names in the banner a bit?

Hi Emily! What a cute concept. I might try removing the yellow banner, and using the red color that you're using in the plaid for the names. Good luck!

Hi Emily! I'm new too! I really like your concept...I think the banner and names could me smaller. Maybe you could bring the ants to the top and added the couples initials in the hearts.
