I'm having a hard time deciding between fonts....any input? Emma script or Bergamot?

Wow, this is so pretty! Gosh, I can't decide between the fonts, perhaps Emma script matches the style here, while Bergamot provides a bit more contrast. They both look great!

I like the Bergamot- the design feels modern, and the block letters keep it from being too girly.

This is stunning!! I adore the colors, illustrations, everything! I think the emma script fits better with the organic feel of this, but both are great : )

Love this one, Carolyn! I like both fonts, but I kind of prefer the Bergamot just because it's more unique. But you can't go wrong with either one :)

I think bergamot looks more elegant/bold and makes more of a statement. Gorgeous design!

So lovely Carolyn! Great colors! I think I like Emma script just a tad more, but they're both great! it feels more like it's part of the composition - like it's party of your artwork. It matches really well with your illustration. But, either way you go, it's still a beautiful piece!! :)
