Of course the pictures are wonderful!!!
I think that the font on the paragraph should be a little bit bigger.  Also the info on the bottom of the card, which is in pink,  I think that it should be a shade darker or the blue color.  As it, it doesn't stand out.
Love Mom

Hey There,

You need to use a sans serif font center the Arden has type 1 diabetes or flush left before Arden's head. the middle text needs to at least 2pt bigger and Mom is right use a darker shade of pink for learn more about arden's day at the bottom try getting the pink off of her shirt that would probably work better.

Weren't you a graphic designer once? Barb
what they said. thought is give them a compelling reason to visit ardensday. Maybe one or two sentences that says what content they will find.  
Also, not sure if altruism is the right word....actually, I have a ton of thoughts and bouncing them with a conversation is always more productive. give me a shout and I'll give you my two dollars worth (two cents is inflated these days). oxoxox

love the pictures, dont like the word altruism, everyone wont know what it means

I'd lose the 2nd sentence and increase the font size on the first sentence so it is easier to read. Less is more. The first sentence captures exactly what you are looking for. And the bottom pink should be the same color as Arden's shirt as the above mentioned

i love it. just make the words bigger and change the bottom to a the blue on the top.
