This is one of the few designs I've seen were this photo really *works* for the card. (and I'm loving the retro style of this design!)

Great refinements. Option B is my vote. The more muted photo is lovely with the graphics and while I like graphics on both options I think the simpler graphics of Option B conveys your message more clearly.

Love them both Lena - the color palate and details are perfection! I think B is my fav though - the 'less is more' gets me every time. You could probably play with a different color palate on option A and change up a few things and make it a separate entry though?

I like both, but am preferring b a little more. I love the way the composition of "the drapers" box is working in a. Maybe if everything was stacked a little more on top of each other in b?

Lena, maybe you can rework B a bit in diff colors/layout etc because i think they are both so great and could work as 2 separate entries. :)

Hi Lena, lots of fun, I love the retro graphic elements and colors. My only suggestion is to find a photo with just a little bit of orange or turquoise, the photo is a bit of disconnect with the graphics. This will help in the voting. Cheers, Robin
