    It looks great! Maybe just having the text a little brighter. You look really good in the pictures!

      i like the two photos, but agree about the font..it definitely needs to be darker, and i'm not sure i'm in love with the font itself...i almost think it's too stuffy (for lack of a better word) for pics on the beach....

        I'd like it better w/1 photo and just gracias, but it is probably a personal choice. But I love the gracias - going to copy you on that!

          I tried it with the text being darker and i dind't like how it took away from the background picture.... I'm going to try changing the color though.

          Thanks but this is the one part I actually really do like
          One thing I might change is either taking off the "thank you" or the "gracias." Not sure why though....does everyone you are sending them to know what gracias means? If so, then I would take off the thank you.
          These are the thank you cards we are sending out to all our 55 guests that came to mexico with us, so I'd hope by now they know or remember what gracias means.. hehe Maybe I should have mentioned that before. Thanks for the feedback.

          That's what i was going for to be honest. I like having the background opacity level higher and then a picture. I guess just personal taste. Do you think if I made the brighter color picture bigger would it help?

          I'm going to try that.. I like that idea. Think I should leave the "thank you" font in brown though? Or both in yellow? Thanks Ann!

          yeah I know... but I figured since it was a wedding it should be fancy. Do you have any recomendations for fonts? I'm open to changing the font! Thanks!

          Awww, thank you. I just feel like it's missing something or soemthing is off. Ann may be right about changing the color... or changing the font itself. i'm going to go play around.

          Sorry Jenn, I knew I missed a quote.

          I used Lumapix and photoshop. A mixture of both. Although i think you could use lumapix to do the whole thing.

              Didn't even notice the "Thank You" - I do think they should be in the same color and font. Man, where is Sarah (DIY Design Queen) when you need her?! The font I used everywhere way Papyrus - worked for me, and my stuff was pretty casual.

              (my siggy stuff that is in blue is papyrus font)

              OK so I went to dafont and got one I really like. It's fancy but soft. if that makes sense....

              I also changed the font color to yellow.

              I know I was hoping Sarah would be around... she is the Queen of DIY and the Lumapix Goddess!
