I think it would help the composition to move the name down so it's level with the center of the beautiful poppy. Maybe change the red in the address area to the pale blue.

I designed this to be a flat card so I wanted the name to be at the top to leave ample room to compose a note. However, if it was a folded card I think the name would definitely look better centered with the poppy . . . hmmm . . . hadn't given that a thought! I'll try the address area in the pale blue too. Thanks so much for your feedback. This is my first time submitting a design so any advice is greatly appreciated!

Great use of textures...I love the colors, and the writing within the flower is a great idea. Nice job! =)
