Make the stars from a branding iron and I'm ready to play it. :P
Seriously though, the red/brown/pink contrasts are a little hard to see. Make it a nice black star with the inside empty like a brand and problem solved.

"reverts back to 3 after one full round." - The 'r' at the start of the sentence should be capitalised.

On the sticker itself, "Oxtail Tips" should be singular form, "Oxtail Tip". You MIGHT want to change "Hoof" to "Hooves", since there are 4 of them, but I think this one's understood.

Looking good, hope it gets the stamp! (:

dana, can you see if you can get the sticker to have a slight peeling effect on one of the corners, as if it is coming of. Do not forget the shadow that would create though.

apart from that, the sticker looks much better.

Should I wait to hear from isaiah40 before I make these changes to see if he has anything to add?

Best wishes,
Dana

This is a great idea! Just make sure the shadow is the same perspective as the chalkboards. I'm still not up on the old west font for the title, but that could just be a personal thing.

dana, i don't have any issue with the title font, but i would like to see the star given the same drop shadow treatment as the title if that is possible, or something similar.
it looks simply flat, and out of place between the title words.
Also, and i am not requesting this, but have you thought about some outer shadow/drop shadow for the bull - very slight - just to lift it from the flatness of the background. :)

speaking only as a player (since i'm not a graphics CA) i like this idea to make the stars stand out more.

I'll try and post a new version tomorrow with the stars standing out more, and the logo star reworked to work with the rest of the logo, as well as a peeling sticker.

OK, I think I got everything.
I tried making the stars black like a branding iron but they blended in with the text and were hard to see, so I tried off white which I think makes them stand out more.

you should have given 'reverts' a capital R as it is the start of a new sentance.
