This is really pretty! I would add some tracking to the type so the letters don't look so condensed. I'd also make the type a a few points smaller so that it isn't competing with the beautiful picture and flowers

Hi Brie. This is sweet and beautiful. I wonder if making the font for the date, pounds etc, smaller and using a different separation instead of the vertical lines, maybe a scroll or dot, would be interesting? You could then increase the size of the image and surroundings a little bit with the added space. Just a thought; it is nice right now. :) Chris
