Adoring your colors and the textile like feel of this. what kind of stoke did you put on emmascript to give it such nice textural bulk?

This is fantastic, Carolyn! I think the design is so perfect, that I don't think you need the compass on it. You could keep it in the party decor, but I like the simple style of the boat and fishes : )

If I could let you see how much I struggled with a sailboat design for this challenge till I gave up, the kids name was Oliver. And then I see this, WONDERFUL design of yours, I guess mine was just not meant to be. Agree with Jen that you don't need the compass on the card. If you decide to keep it, it still looks awesome. I'm gonna stop now, but this is just perfect !

This invite looks like a piece of artwork Carolyn! I'm not sure the compass is needed (as the others have said) and could maybe be incorporated on the back design. Love how your textures all work so well together.

thank you all so much for your valuable feedback!! I was going for a 'stamp' feature with the compass.... I'll try working on that or removing all together :)
