Minted Design Challenge: Holiday Gift Tags

I am taking on the next Minted Challenge:  to create holiday gift tags.  They have 2 size requirements, square and rectangular.  The gift tags can be with or without an uploaded picture option, and they are double sided.  Here are my sketches so far.  I see many changes that will be made to these.  Thoughts, anyone?

Inspiration Board: Art Nouveau

Art nouveau has always been one of my favorite art periods.  I love the rich colors and repeating patterns (I studied textile design, so how could I not love this period in time?).  So many artists made work during this period, and so many artists today are still inspired by this period that it is easy to find beautiful images to draw for inspiration.  Here is my inspiration board for art nouveau.  I am working on an art nouveau style invitation…to be seen later..

New Invitation: Watercolors

What do you think of this new invitation?  I was playing with my watercolors and got inspired to use a watercolor background as the theme for an invitation suite.  I think I am still toying with the fonts, layout, and color.  I would love to hear your thoughts!

a work in progress, please tell me your thoughts
