This is the best layout I've seen out of all your previous versions Neeta. Great job.

I voted A - I think the 3 is more prominent in the hive and brings together the type and the illustration. Best of luck to you!

A! and one tiny final tweak -- I'd bring the bees down just a tad, so you can bring down 'and baby makes' a little

Great changes Neeta! Option b for me but without shadow, smaller nest, bigger bees :) You've done great changes, good job!

Neeta, I like that the bees don't look distorted in A but prefer their placement in B. The hive can be smaller to give the mom/dad bees more room to fit. I really hope I'm not confusing you. At this point, all the changes you've made have been great

Neeta - I voted A, but, I think, I prefer the bees without shadows like in B. Good luck!

I like A better but if you're willing to keep playing with it I'd suggest you lose the blue shadow to freshen images and not sure if the z's are for buzzing or the baby? Why don't you limit them to just 3-5 and space them out? I'm not crazy about the number 3 in hive but that's just personal. How about a smallish set of those things on bees heads just sticking out of hive a little? Lastly Neeta the scale of bees to hives could use some adjustment too. Driving you crazy yet?

Hi Neeta, I like the bees facing each other in B; I agree with Susan's great suggestions as we'll. you've made some great changes :)

Neeta, I like option A because the '3' is in the hive ... but I do think you should put one bee on either side of it to balance it out. Your bees looked cramped into the corner. Your 'zzzzzz' can go above the hive and between the bees. You're doing great with the changes so far.

I like b better as it's more balanced on the circle but circular text still off center a tad. I don't think the flowers enhance your design Neeta. Instead I would suggest you concentrate on the bees and the hive. Maybe make them flying near hive? And your text at bottom could be bigger. See what happens. Maybe others will chime in too.

Neeta, I think your illustration should be scaled down a bit more to allow more room for your text. The text is too close to the edge and I can't read the text below the illustration. If your illustration is smaller, then you'll have more room to work with.

I voted Option B - the yellow background feels warmer to me. I agree with Oma's recommendations, too. Good luck!

nice updates Neeta. I agree with Oma -- I'd scale down the illustration a tad so the small text can be a little bigger.

I like the warmer colors in B as well and agree with Oma, the text is hard to read when it is that small.

What if you use a solid background color like beige or light yellow?

Netta, the bees illustration is very sweet. I find the pattern in the back too busy, also check the text at the bottom it doesn't look centered to me. Good luck!
