Love the colors and the border Whitney. The wording is a bit crowded. Have you thought about maybe making it two lines surrounding the package? I would do "MANY HAPPY" a little more arched, increase the size of the package by 20%, and the "RETURNS" below it maybe straight in a different smaller font solid darker blue. It might be fun to add a name below in italic font. Just a thought. Love your classy look.

I agree with Chris' comments, and was also thinking you could lose the outer border altogether. It competes with the lines of your little package and double lines of your type. I'd make the type smaller so it fits with you package size more - maybe it becomes gray so the package comes forward? Maybe you could pull the strings of the package into a right and left flourish under the type and put a recipient's name underneath like Chris suggested? Just a few thoughts... good luck!
