I was going to suggest you take out the doodad earlier too, but you seemed to like it so much I didn't want to stir the pot, but seriously, this is much more powerful without it. very cool!

I wouldn't use either Rebecca. Might be cooler w/out extra.

I also like the idea without either, but would still want to see pink somewhere. I love that color combo. Maybe it can be in the names...

Ok...I'm going to complicate it a little more. I like it without either the snowflake or the heart. But I do love the addition of the pink. What if the little flag with the date was pink? Just a thought! Great work!

i like the heart and the color, but maybe the shape inside the O should be the heart, if that' makes sense? i think it complicates it having the heart shape and the oval shape behind it.

I like the pink but I think I would prefer it without either. I like the idea of trying the flag in pink! Super cute Rebecca!

I also like the pop of pink, but agree that you don't really need either. I like the snowflake a teeny bit more than the heart. :)

I actually miss the heart because of it's stamped quality. It's lost in the snowflake. i still think it's very festive with the heart.

Love this. I think the family name gets a bit lost in the photo. I think with make the black bar the pink or gold or move it name line sans black box centered under the illustration in black. Maybe just put "The Hendersons" to keep it one line if you decide to move it to the white space.

Which option works best.. gold ribbon or plain text? I originally had a pink bar instead of the black but it was too distracting.

Hey Rebecca, I think the name centered on the white is STUNNING! That's for sure my pick. This is so awesome.

I might just then center everything not eh left in the white vertically.

This really stood out to me as I was looking through the designs. I love the JOY, especially the scarf. I like the family name in the white. I didn't even notice it was under the photo until I started looking at your other options.

Another vote for plain and under "JOY." I kind of wonder what it would look like without the pink heart or with it elsewhere on the design. Your JOY is fantastic; this is a really great, eye-catching design!

I love the first above with the name below joy. the ribbons get kind of lost and i think it balances the whole thing. very cute and fun!
