One more time! Berries tighter & closer to pic? Or loose and scattered? And is it balanced - something feels off, and I can't leave it alone! :)

I prefer the tighter look of A. Honestly, Jessica, I don't know what else you can do to improve on this one. It's perfect.

I like the hint of read in B – that one gets my vote, but I'm with some of the other commenters who mentioned mixing the reds up or maybe using a more muted red. You could try keeping the name in gold and use red in the lines above and below the name? That way the red carries through, but remains more understated. They're all really lovely :)

B! Glad you revisited this! The red type is a nice balance to the red berries and I like the pop of color. Looks great!

They are all gorgeous, but I really like the red. It helps group the text and photo into a strong focal point, and the red berries give the illustration more of a relationship to the rest of elements. This will be a fun card to receive and display. :)

I love the pop of red in A. I also think that the red makes the design feel more balanced. Before I felt it was bottom heavy. I still think the bottom has more weight than the top, maybe making the 2014 in red would help.

Still really like this! My nit-picky thoughts are that it kind of needs the berries (either colorway), but that they need to be fewer and in tighter to the photo, otherwise, they draw the eye a little too much.

Hi Jessica! I voted for C. I like the addition of the red berries, but keeping the gold type. My only comment would be that the space to the upper right feels like it needs something. Maybe a taller photo to go with the narrow font? Or you could move up 2014, make it a bit larger but outline it, like your gold branch. Hope that helps :)

I like A the best. If you'd like to use red, I'd suggest maybe using it in the name, using various shades much like the greens in your illustration. Right not the red stands out a little too much, drawing your eye away from more important elements.

I really like B. I don't think you need the 2014 in the top right corner. I find it a bit distracting.

Hi Jessica, I like Option C with the red berries. Maybe they don't all need to be the same color red? I also like option A's photo better, the current photo in C makes me think there's a pine headpiece on that little boys head :-) Or just reversing the photo in C would solve that problem. I love the layout, and big name, great job!

Wow, this is just gorgeous. I had a super hard time choosing. They are all great but I went with A since it was the one I saw first in the thumbnails and loved it then.

I voted A, but could easily have picked C too! Maybe you could still incorporate a touch of gold in 1 or 2 of the pine branches or in the family name? I prefer the filled-in pine branches to the outlined ones in general.

Wow, so pretty! I like C the best. I agree with Ann's suggestion to put the family name in red. The photo in A is my favorite because the faces are larger and their big smiles fit the "happiness" text a little better. :)
