Gorgeous! The type looks great- and that smidge of texture/paint in the egg is just perfection!

I think your typography looks great. And I love the colors. I'm not much of a pink kinda girl. When I was pregnant with my daughter I tried to stay away from too much pink. And when I had my son I loved oranges and teals. So I think this is a great gender neutral color palette.

Beautiful illustration! Love the hearts on the egg and the mama bird, so precious! Only thing that's different is the texture on the egg, maybe make it more subtle like in the dark leaves? But its really beautiful irrespective.

So beautiful Erin! I think your typography looks great, especially the mama bird set in Bombshell. The only thing I might play with is setting the detail type in upper and lower case to minimize it a little. But otherwise, it's superb!!

Erin, I don't know that I've seen anything more precious. The egg- its just so damn sweet. And Mama bird - I love it. The typography looks wonderful. I almost always lean on the side of smaller type but I really think its great the way it is. The colors are rockin - I agree with Jessica on the colors - not too dark at all and totally neutral. I'm pretty sure you have a winner here.

Beautiful color palette! Love this. I would try the other text in upper/lower case. Leave the mom & baby all caps. And maybe tighten up the line spacing just a tiny tiny bit?

Giirrrrlllll, this is NICE! My only thought is that the registry text feels overly important compared to the rest of the type. It looks bigger than the address and the orange draws even more attention to it. Have you tried the address in orange and bumping the font size down one or two on the registry line?

I wonder if the bottom half of the text should be slightly smaller? It feels like it's trying to expand to fill the space. But overall, I love the illustration, and it actually looks really good as is.

love it! only suggestion would be to play with your type on the registry line. i like it in the orange but it's taking my eye away from the "enid + baby" line (since it's in all caps). maybe play with a few options and see if anything works. awesome work girl! :)

this is stunning! I don't think you need the registry in orange though. Maybe the same as everything else or even in the bombshell? I might also make the background just a hair lighter but seriously this design is amazing! I think it would even make a fabulous art print!
