Hi Matt! It looks like you might have submitted this again so I just wanted to make sure you knew that you can edit your already submitted designs, but it's a bit hidden (go to My Design Studio --> Manage Your Collection --> Edit). You're of course also welcome to delete the old one and resubmit, but I just thought I'd let you know (editing has the advantage of keeping your likes and comments)! Anyway, I think you've done a nice job with the bar at the bottom, but I still vote for trying it on a black and white photo =)

hey madeline, Yes! I figured that out after I uploaded the new design. And then stupidly deleted the first design page. Thanks for the help and suggestions though. I de-saturated the photo slightly...I thought the black and white lost too much of the color.

I think desaturating it a bit was smart, but I still think this might not be the best photo to show off your design - there's just so much going on, it doesn't have much breathing room. Have you played around with trying it in a landscape format with "LOVE" going straight across? Did you try upping the opacity on the letters (and/or playing around with transparency modes) on the b&w photo? (by the way, I won't be at all offended if you don't take my suggestions... just spitballing!) Feel free to comment on any of my designs if you have the time (or indeed anyone's designs - it's a great part of the minted community!).

Totally appreciated. I will definitely be fiddling around with this card so any comments and feedback are great to have.
