I would like to know if there is anything about this that isn't working. What do you think of the sans serif font paired with the hand lettered "fizz?" Thank you.

I love the simplicity of a, but would move the family name down, maybe make it a little heavier.

I'm honestly torn on this one, Brooke! I like elements from each. I like how bright the photo is in B but the ribbon and font seem to compete with the bottle for me.

I love this bottle! I think you could even get rid of the ribbon in b and put the family info under the bottle in green or red and have an awesome design :)

I like 'C', but it needs something to tie the two sections togethr--lik the ribbon--but I would choose something with some movement to it, like a curling ribbon or banner.

What a cute idea! What if the white in the photo came below the ribbon and had the name in it. I think this would balance it out and create an even boarder at the top and bottom. Not sure you need the other flake below the name. Love the retro-ish colours!

love it Brooke! A couple tiny thoughts - What if you angle the photo just a tad bit to give it a little movement? Also, what if the band goes behind the photo -- it feels a little dominant and that way the picture gets more attention? The soda bottle is adorable and love the clever copy! :)

LOVE your bottle and catchphrase!!! I agree with the other comments. Another option could be to make the photo take up the whole right side of the card (looks like a 70/30 split?), ditch that polka-dotted band and bottom snow flake, and put the family name in a ribbon at the bottom left of the photo? or in a red label at bottom center of the photo? The polka-dotted band and bottom snowflake are stealing too much attention away from that cool bottle and the photo, I think. Good luck!!

This is such a great idea Brooke! Your illustration of the "pop" bottle (I see you're from Mich) is awesome!! I like Lori's idea about angling the photo to give it some movement. I would like to see the photo on top of the dotted banner so it can take center stage. I like the border, but it just feels a little overly dominant right now. Maybe even a few bubbles coming out of the bottle or around the bottle. These are super nit picky things. You've got a great design!

I agree with all the comments so far... the right side of the card needs more movement. The bottle is awesome! Such a cute concept :)

I agree with the other comments. LOVE your soda bottle! It is so well done that it deserves all of the attention. I would love to see the photo angled a bit too and perhaps just a tad bigger. I would love to see what this looks like on a white background. I think your awesome bottle would really "pop."
