I like the changes you made! Might make the bottom banner thinner so it doesn't compete with the one in the seal. Have you thought about a sans serif for the copy at the bottom? I might try Futura. I would also try it without the border across the top of the photo and bring the photo up a bit and enlarge the baby. I like the type on the seal, but I would reduce the size of Introducing and the bullets outside of Thomas Blake. Really coming along!

hi Nikkie, I like the direction this is going, but I feel like there's too many borders. Have you thought about trying a full bleed photo behind the seal or trying even a B&W photo without the border? what if the photo went from the horizontal line made by the banner and bled down? Just some thought...
