postcard back!

This is going to be the back of the postcard that I'm currently working on.  I did the front illustration (I decided to turn the dog jumping for a bee hive into an ensemble piece with the other two characters, and that illustration I'm now revising)...

But what do you think of this?  I still wanna color it...

What do you think of the word placement and such?  And the composition?

Do you think someone will question that the tree doesn't have all the branches that the front side does?  I actually used a different tree for this one because the other one was too busy...but does it matter?  Is a tree even necessary?

Make sure you put your return address in the corner or the Post Office will have an issue. I think there are specs on the PO website.
Looks good otherwise.

I agree with Patti and it's going to be a pain to get your address label in the right spot every time. It might be a bit to much for the back.

I'll actually be leaving the area where the 'production company' info is blank - and I also have all that area under the squirrel's tail to put the address label...as for my information, it'll be printed right on the card.

It has to be a certain amount of space from the corner. I had an issue with this once and was told by my local PO to change it on my next postcard. I just don't want you to have them sent back to you.
Check the PO website for specifics.

I agree with Patti the post office is really picky about the back of the post card. They can tell you better than I can if there are any issues with your design.
