Thank You Card

Thank You Card - student project

I'm currently working on a greeting card design that was stumping me a little bit, so I decided this would be a good opportunity to start over. :) 

The card will say: 

You said it was nothing, but it was everything. Thank you. 

Update (1/27):

I slept on it, and then changed everything.

It was feeling off to me in the area of the words – like it was all floating and had no anchor. So I brought back in the background blob shape from my sketches & kept playing around with color. 

I THINK I'm calling this done. What do you think of the changes? :)

Update (1/26):

Working out color is never my favorite part! Here's what I've got for now. :)

The places where I had to do the most revision were in the words Everything & Thank You. I may do some more adjusting before I call it truly final, but it's shaping up pretty well.

I'm pretty happy with the lettering & have the background roughed in. Need to finalize that & move to color.

Pencil Sketch for Inking: 

After some back & forth and adjusting, this is where the sketch stands now. There are still some adjustments to be made & I've changed my mind a tiny bit on how I'll handle the background, but those will be figured out after I've gotten the lettering inked.
