Thank you, Nikkie! Do you think this font is better?

Hi Amy—So cute! My only thoughts are that I'd be tempted to remove the lowest two water drops and move the whale up, out of the border; I'd also like to see what this would look like if you moved the copy up maybe a quarter of an inch and shortened the dotted lines to be the same width (or maybe a little shorter than) the copy. I like your revision with Ostrich better than Weston for the copy, but I'm not sure it's the right choice quite yet. Maybe a typeface that's a little more round, rather than tall and thin? And one last thought: have you tried placing the numeral below the name, in the center of the splashes? It makes sense where it is, but I think the hierarchy would make more sense with the number below. Hope this helps!

Thank you Marleigh! I changed some things according to your suggestions. :) I can't really figure out a good way to put the age in the splashes, so I just left it where it is but made it a little smaller. Thoughts on this one? I've just attached the photo, not uploading it yet. Thanks!!

hmm. comparing the 2 I think I like the whale in the border. But I agree about shortening the dotted lines and changing the font for sure. I forgot to move the copy up so let me try that. Thanks again for your suggestions!

Love it!! I love the circular design--really helps this stand out. The illustration and colors are great!

Amy this is great! Perfect use of the circle shape with a water theme. The only critique I would have is hat the size of the font on the information makes the font a little tough to read. I love it for the name, but I think the info needs to be bigger or a more simple font. Love the design :-)

I would nudge up the name a tiny bit to give it more space evenly. Love your color palette :)
