Like A, the black seems too dark for a little girl's birthday. Have you tried a light pink or teal or mint to compliment the books?

I like both but A is my first choice. Nice changes. If you still have the energy I might tighten up the spacing between books and "Madison" part. It would lower design element and tie 2 together just a bit more but let's see what others add. Fun Carol.

Definitely option A. The pastel colours of the books don't work on a black background. Your original design with the bright pops of colours were a better choice if you wanted a dark background.

Adorable!! And a cool theme! I think you could lose the tablecloth scallops and dots, but keep the pinky color.. esp. Since the text is a little tight at the bottom give it some room. And maybe scale down the books. Just a tad for some breathing room up top. I love the colors and textures!

Awh, I love this, Carol! I totally agree with Rebecca, it doesn't need the tablecloth - then you can reverse the type out of the black. Also, and don't hate me, I'd love to see brighter, cheerier colors like a pink, teal green blue and possibly peachy orange? Then the colors will match the fun layout :)

i like the illustration a lot. i agree with rebecca the scallop border is making the bottom text very tight. and i feel either you should bring everything a little bit down or scale down the books a little bit so that there wil be a little more room on the top also .

EEK! This is so good but one more teeny, tiny comment: I see a mustache when I look at the cake plate stand. Maybe it's just me Carol. Good luck on this one.
