Wow! Fantastic illustration! I would have ended up with about a dozen layers.

I like it Phrosné! The only thing that throws me off is the hard divide between the blue section and the top pink gradient. It would be nice if there was a way to not have that hard edge cutting through the angel and breaking the image up. Maybe a blue to pink gradient would work? Otherwise I like all the illustrations and the whimsy of it all! :)

Its beautiful Phrosné! so fun and whimsical. I agree with Eric in the gradient, and I think I would put The Webers in the same as from our front porch - it feels like it is conflicting a little with the font above (bus pen?) love it :)

I love the whimsy of all your characters and details, Phrosne! I agree about the hard break of color, but I know you're already tweaking that. I agree about changing the type for the name to the sans serif, and as they don't have a porch, maybe it's from the new front door? The we've moved type is really hard to read too and I could see that being more straightforward as well.

Once you play with the recommended changes this will be perfect. It is just so fun and crazy, gives you a Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation feel.

Hi Phros, love the changes! I choose the blue because it pops the copy and illustrations more. I would move the bottom copy down from the house a pinch. Looking fanciful and lovely!
