i got inspired to do this "made from scratch" idea but i'm not sure it's working. i think i need to find the right photos and i'm not sure if the pink is too small or light to read. feedback?

this is a really cute idea with a lot of potential. couple suggestions: it's hard to see where the edges of the card are going to be. try shrinking t he recipe card down and bordering it with the dark pink instead of the drop shadow at the top. make the main text bigger. last but not least incorporate more of the brown.

roxanne, thank you so much for your suggestions! i incorporated all of them and revised a few other things. i think it's looking better and hopefully starting to work as a concept. what do you think? thank you!!!

much better. great job. don't forget to use the photoshop submission file to get the drop shadow on the border. (it's a mini-pet-peeve among some of the minties. it helps everyone know where the edge is.)

thanks! so all edges are supposed to have a drop shadow? i thought they eliminated the photoshop files? i'm using illustrator and can just create the drop shadows there... thanks again!

The submission image templates are Photoshop, they're in the "Submission Images for Online" folder that came with the kit
