Hi Marnie, I would color the bumper and the wheels and the balloons.

Hi Marnie! I agree with Chris and Lori's comments. Maybe simplify to just a few balloons?

Ok here goes. :) I think the concept is super cute. I like the way the car is on a slant in your mini-book so you might keep it that way. Here is what I would think about changing. I would reduce the whole illustration size by 10%. Background maybe white; car main part maybe even a fun red color or the deeper blue, or if you keep the same even it will stand our more against the white background. Other thing that might be really fun is the whole car all in white with the black outline and just the photo and balloons in color. Maybe change the olive green balloons to a warmer color. Change up the font: I would add the child's name so for example, Justin just turned one in two different fonts; maybe nickelodeon for the JUSTIN (or whatever name you pick) on one line and the next line be just turned one smaller size in futura or Mrs. Eaves Italic and the date be what you have on a black background with white font instead of gray and black. Just some ideas, it is cute now. Sorry to go on so. :)

Hi Marnie - I agree with Chris' ideas. Maybe play with the color a tad, and I think the car was cute on the slant in the minibook. I think people would want to add their child's name - and maybe maybe stylize the 'one' a little differently from 'just turned' so it pops more. The idea overall is super cute and clever :)
