comments from carol:

Each day, as a woman matures she becomes more beautiful! A lovely birthday cake, like an English garden of delicate florals, celebrates the famous quote by Jane Austen.

I love Jane's idea that as we age we grow more beautiful. Comments welcome! Showing the cake detail since it's kind of small here.

Carol, I really like your design - the floral cake idea is great! I think the cake needs to be scaled down to give it more air, and maybe put the text below the cake into 3 lines, to give the design a more vertical feel. I think if you fill in the cake with a few more flowers, and scale down just the cake part a little, the illustration will read more as a cake. I hope this helps! I think it's a clever design : )

This is beautiful, Carol! I think I agree with Jennifer though about the text. The negative space that is happening at the top of the cake is so nice, and if the text wasn't above it, it would shine even more. :)

This is sooo pretty! I agree with Jennifer's comments; I think if you make the vertical stand a teency shorter you can make the copy three lines - it is truly beautiful!
