I absolutely adore your colors and typography. However, I wish the brush strokes were a bit more deliberate. Right now they are just sort of a blob in the center.

Thanks Karen and Sarka! Kerry, can you be more specific about what you think is wrong with the strokes? I concentrated the color in the middle so that I would have a clean 3/4" border around the edge for breathing room. Is it not working? Thanks for your feedback.

Well, I'm not really sure how you would go about it. I guess I just meant less messy, maybe a little "wetter". But this is just my (humble) opinion...still looks great!

Really beautiful. Love the colours--so perfect for a warm summer wedding!

This stood out the most out of the other ones on the same page. Perhaps make the white font stronger so it is easier to read underneath the pinks and oranges. But beautiful overall.
