#2 & #3 -the "OSG" part isn't clear
#1-4 - font is too baroque and busy...not clear that this is the GUILD rather than the opera company
#7 -not bad, but New Mexico isn't known for cacti (that's Arizona). Perhaps you could turn the cactus into a chile, slightly larger than the cactus is now. Can you make the note/chile a deep aqua color? Need room on the card for name, address, phone and email.
Thanks all. Keep on trying.

#9 good concept and layout..I like the chile pepper. #12 not bad, perhaps another try? Color should be the blue in #6.
#6 I like the layout and use of red; not sure what the other graphic represents.
The group name is Opera Southwest Guild i.e. it's the Guild of the opera company named Opera Soutwest.

#27 how about using red chile peppers instead of music notes?

#10 #28 and others "Opera" should not be the most prominent word...."Opera Southwest" is the company; the logo is for the opera guild or "Guild"

#19 & #20 are nice, but emphasis is on "opera" rather than "guild"
