love the red, it makes it stand out and differentiates it from the other chalkboard submissions out there.

The addition of the red has really lifted this Becky! Everything looks more balanced. I'm sure this will be a winning design now :)

wow, the red is a very nice addition and I love how you didn't over do it. Just enough touches. It really sets is apart.

Like the added red colour - no frame is best because it gives a more option for customers to choose different die cut shapes.

Love this! The red is a really nice touch. I want the photo to bleed though - I just think it would feel more finished that way.

i love the changes Becky. I think it would look best with a single photo though.

I love this a lot. I agree, I wish "merry" had more punch to it. I would try making the color a little brighter.

I think this is absolutely beautiful Becky! I can see why you are questioning 'MERRY' though. For some reason it looks too blurry. I guess you can sharpen it up a bit by losing the drop shadow effect and keeping it in line with the treatment on the other words. Hope that helps! :)

I actually don't think this is too close at all. Maybe have a thicker stroke on the merry text to help it pop.
