The yellow hashes on the top left seem bright. Maybe play with adding some variance in transparency to those so they are more in line visually with the saturation on the other two watercolor marks?

I love the design and colors! Only thing is the word 'shower' seems a little to close to 'baby.'

I would suggest experimenting with a very simple sans serif font where you currently have the tall, skinny handwritten font. I think it would clean up the look a bit, but just play around with it. :) Love the colors!

I agree with Linda that "shower" does seem a little close to "baby". Are the yellow hashes representing rain? If so, perhaps a light blue or aqua shade might better represent that. Or if they are representing flowers or sunshine, maybe a shade of orange? Otherwise, I think what Champagne Paper Co. said about playing with the transparency would work well too. Good luck! :)

Love the colors and the Argentina nights font!! just wondering how it would look like if you change the mountain retreat font and maybe the space between the lines. Stunning design anyway :) Good luck!

At first glance, I think the text might lock together better if the "S" in shower falls between the "B" and "a" in baby so that it is more centered. Fun concept!

The background is super cool! Have you thought about simplifying your font choices for the body text? This would allow the "couples baby shower' and the names to really pop!

Pretty! I would simplify the fonts as the script is harder to read when it's smaller. Also I'd like to see this in another background color option. Is there any possibility of tweaking the background colors? I would like to see this version with some blues and greens. Maybe make a boy vs girl version using color?

I really like the color combo you chose. Also, I agree with the last comment that the fonts could be simplified.

I think that the alignment of the "couples baby shower" type could be played with a little bit and possibly avoid using the script for the smaller type due to legibility issues. Love the use of bright color!
