Beautiful - the only thing I would change is to add more shadow to the envelope - as if it's laying on top of the frame.

JUDGE: Beautiful LO, I agree with needing just a little more shadowing on the envelope to separate it from the paper a little more.

JUDGE - I agree with everyone else, the envelope needs a bit of a shadow over the frame. The bow runs off the page, so I would move that over to the left some, and add a softer, blurred shadow to it. The shadows on the stem are just perfect!!! Other than those few things, your layout is just stunning!!

JUDGE - I would like a little more shadow on the frame, too, to lift it from the background. After all, a frame is a relaively thick, heavy object, so you would expect it to cast a shadow.
I do love the layout, truly beautiful design, very well-balanced.

JUDGE- I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't been said already. I just love that picture you used! One VERY little thing--I noticed you said you used the Feelin Welcome kit twice in your description. Like I said, it's a very little thing.

JUDGE - I will add one more thing. The shadows on the border and the leafy floral element are opposite of each other. When creating shadows, try to visualize where your "light source" is coming from. Is it from the upper left-hand side of the page (120 degrees)? If so, then ALL your shadows need to be created as if the light was hitting them from that direction. It doesn't matter where the angle of your "virtual light source" is, but what matters is that the shadowing is consistent. The lack of consistency is a very common problem, so don't feel bad, okay. Hope this makes sense! Having said that, the layout is really pretty - the soft blues are wonderful for such a precious photo.

JUDGE - How clever to have the flower elements tucked inside the envelope and the one purple one give a nice balance to the purple background. Very pleasing to the eyes.
I agree with the other judges regarding the envelope over the frame. Besides that I've just a couple of minor suggestions. I think that the LO would look more natural if the lace border/ribbon were casting less of a shadow. Although a piece of lace is thicker than paper and casts a greater shadow, because this piece is the first item on the page, it's having a heavier shadow than the square frame on top of it gives the effect that it's hovering over the page and that the only thing keeping it from slipping off is the square frame at the bottom.
The only other thing I would suggest is with regards to the placement of your text. Having it in the upper corner pulls the viewer's eyes away from the main focus - the photo. This can be easily fixed by moving the text down and to the right a bit, to sort of tuck it into the corner made by the leaves and frames.
I think this LO is very sweet.

Judge- What a beautiful layout and great photo, you must be so proud. I just love those flowers in the envelope, its a really nice touch. I do however agree that you should add a little shadow on the envelope to seperate it from the paper. I would also move the text and the bow just a little as it is very close to the edges. Wonderful layout!

Judge:I love the place metn of your elements and the kit is perfect for the picture.
I agree with the comments above. More shadow on the envelop. I als so like to see more show on the frame so that it is more visible on top of the squares.
