    I love the bottom half, very sharp with a strong atmosphere. The top half however, isn't so good. The soft pastel pinks really mess it up imo, it's just really incoherent from everything else.

    You will definitely need to increase the leading of the paragraph so it's not so tight and awkward to read, then remove all of those stupid.............. And not so needed full stop trails.

    Don't forget to proof read the copy for grammatical & spelling errors etc. Joya wants a capital letter as it's a name, it looks like you've miss-typed 'the' as 'thr' on the second line? If the text is meant to flow together as one sentence don't start each new line with a capital letter as it breaks the flow and confuses the reader.

    Seriously consider removing the cheesy looking purple hazy glow from around 'Chin Productions' as it looks extremely amateur. You've used drop shadows everywhere else, keep it consistent.

    Less important information such as the email addresses and the 21 & over notice could be relocated to a footer-like strip running across the bottom of the card. Keep its fill black with white text and it would remain in keeping with the overall design.

    In one place you separate the phone number using dashes, and in the other you switch to using periods/full stops; again this is another consistency issue.

    Although it looks nice and vibrant on screen, unless you cough up for special luminous inks once it's printed it may look very much more dulled down and subdued, as CMYK can't produce those range of colours. Its worth doing test prints throughout, you may get away with it looking okay.

    Remember to keep us informed and post updates when you get chance to work on it.

    The girl still looks akward, it's a weird transition from horizontal lines to that vertical line. How about fixing that?
