This design looks so much lighter here than it does on my computer. Trying to decide if I should make it a bit larger and/or bolder so it doesn't get skipped over. Thoughts welcome...

I don't think bigger is the way to go, just bolder color seems like it would showcase the detail better :)

I really like your loops...but I will admit I have passed this over a few times now when it is in thumbnail size. Maybe a bolder color for the voting phase? I really like the composition so I would not change that!

I've used a bolder more orange yellow for the swirls now. It does help it stand out a a bit and show the detail but I have to admit I really love the lighter, sweeter, yellow color.

What if you made the white space the previous light yellow and the swoops white?

I liked the lighter color as well. I think this design is SO SWEET. One thought I have had is that the bottom border is a little bit overwhelming for the name at the top. I would consider making the loops smaller--not just scaling it, but redesigning it--or something similar to balance it a little better. But I do love it, regardless :)

I'm a nut for simple and clean designs. This one really speaks to me, too, but I guess I like all that writing space. Hehe.

This is such a neat design...I love the playful loops. It's decorative without being overwhelming. I would personally love to use this card!
