This is my first label. It's scaled to fit on the Avery 6464 labels. Any feedback would be appreciated!

It actually looks a little smoother than the attached image...

Okay - here are the latest versions. I got rid of the border, lightened the colors and tried a crystalized version...

any thoughts?

Looks good; but because "American Amber Ale" is set on a curve, don't italicize. It will look better. I like the scribbled effect on the flag better than the pixelated version.

Label looks good.

I especially like your warning...(that isn't from a real life experience is it??)

I like the first version, but yeah, de-italicize it. The crystalized one, I don't care for.

No - HB99 - not from first hand experience. At least not the pregnancy bit....
