Looking for guidance with the layout of the text and font colors. I've had such a hard time with this one! Also, is the mountain so bright that it's distracting? Thank you for your help!

Hi Joanna! The illustration's composition is beautifully done! I thought nothing of the mountains and think the subtle colors are spot on. So lovely!

This is adorable!! I like where you have the address in A, but prefer the size and length of RSVP and registry line in B.

A: I can hardly tell the difference in the text, but A looks a little more balanced. The mountain is not standing out from my screen; if you think it looks bright try making it a lower opacity. (That's how it appears on my screen). The illustrations are great as is, and I love the soft colors.

This is adorable, such lovely illustrations! (I was working around something like this but not anymore...) I wouldn't change anything about the illustrations or the colors, the muted palette seems to be working just fine. Nevertheless,the type setting might benefit from some hierarchy and simplification. For example, the mom's name could be the font size of the "A baby shower" and vice-versa. Secondly, your registry info could be just "Baby registry....." Your illustrations are so adorable, that I'd rather see take that center stage, but these modifications are JMO. Lovely,work indeed!

I love the color scheme and illustrations. Just a thought, it would be fun if you did foiling for the stars and moon.

I actually didn't even notice the mountain until you mentioned it. It's quite subtle and actually a really nice touch. Very cute idea. Love the southwest vibe. Feels a bit feminine because of the pink accents, but could easily be used for a boy if applying another colorway. Maybe consider shrinking the bottom two rows of text and moving them down towards the bottom so they're competing less with the event details (3rd tier in importance). Overall, nice design.

I think you have the type figured out. You colors seem all about the same mid range colors. Maybe make some a little darker, or brighter? As is, it is very pleasing.
