I picked A. with B a close second. I think I'd probably prefer B to C however if the text in C was evenly aligned the same way you've designed A and B. For this design having two fonts in the text block is very appealing. I'm not totally sold on the particular shade of green you selected but that could just be personal taste.

I voted C - I think the text is easiest to read in this one. Love the background!

the colors are great, and the herringbone watercolor is soooo cool. i find the text a little cluttered though. i think i would prefer it simplified so it doesn't fight with the amazing pattern. this is so nitpicky too, but is the angle of the green banner the same as the herringbone? it looks just a touch off and it bothers the ocd nutball in me.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm going to play around with the fonts a little and recheck the banner angle again.

Interesting design but the font is a little difficult to read for me

I'm liking the watercolor effect. I agree that the script font is a bit hard to read - especially the date and "registered at" text...
