Cute design Amy! I would say that the bottom text could use just a little bit of breathing room, both horizontally and vertically. Maybe if you decrease the size of the trees just a bit and change it to the standard rectangle shape, then you can get the room you need. That corner cut out is cute but may not be worth it. Good luck!

I love your color scheme and the trees are so fun! You might be able to get away with making the bottom text a little smaller. I'm always making my text smaller and simpler as I design.

Agree with Ashley on needing a wee bit more space on the bottom text. The trees are cute!

It does need a bit more room. I would say that you could make the trees or top text smaller to make some space. The ornaments are really cute but you could probably separate this into two designs. The trees make a great design all on their own and then you can move everything up a bit. I love the colors!

In the spirit of simplification, perhaps you could get away with only one font for the bottom text, and not splitting the year? Maybe if it read: The Robinsons • 2013 Jeff, Heather, etc… It would feel a little cleaner/less squishy?

Love your illustration! I agree with the idea of just using one font for the bottom text, and keeping the numbers in 2013 together.

Thank you for all the feedback! I have not had one spare minute to make these changes... until now! So, I'll get on that! :)
