          I'm here! lol

          Just woke up... let me think a minute.

          I do need a little info:

          What are you printing them on? Are they a folded card or postcard, and are you home-printing or doing Vistaprint or something?

          OK, here are my immediate thoughts:

          1) I would do the background photo in black & white

          2) I'd pick either Thank you or Gracias for the front. Not both. I'd probably put Gracias on the outside, and "Thank You" on the inside

          3) I'm not sure I'm in love with Scriptina for this project. It is one of my favorite fonts, but I'm not 100% in love with it here. Let me think about that for a minute.

          OK, just starting dinner- let me come back to this one...

          Edited to add: I like the yellow. I'm not sure if I like how Jared is half off the photo, kwim? Is that the way the photo is or did you crop it that way?

              I like that font better and the color!

              But, I still think ou only need "gracias" and not both gracias and thank you. I think having both on there makes it look a little busy.

                I love the yellow lettering!!! The scriptina font looks great as well! I'm a little partial to the photos . . .

                    OK, so here's an idea... this would def. work best if you are having them pro. printed so you could do glossy.

                    This is totally rough since I just quickly copy/pasted and changed to B&W and had to cover your text- this obviously would look better if it was started from scratch- but you get the idea...

                    I did black & white on the background and used Jane Austen font for the Gracias. The text also looks good in white this way too, but the general consensus seems to be for the yellow at this point. I also think you could get away with Scriptina too if you're only doing one message on the front.

                    Totally just an idea for you- I have no emotional attachment to it so if you don't like it I won't be offended. You asked for suggestions, and you all know this is my favorite thing to do :)

                    Also, I still would like the background pic better if Jared wasn't cut off on the side, but again, I don't know if that's just how the pic is, or how you cropped it.
