I think C is easiest to read, but still a little tight. I wish there were more cream around all the words. No idea how you did this!! Very cool.

C. I agree with Carrie... it's the easiest to read, but still could use a bit more breathing room. Great concept! :)

I agree C is easiest to read, but wish the name looked more part of the sweater, too, either in color or texture?

B is easier for me to read, but I do like the darker borders you have in A. The green is darker in value than the red, so I find myself looking at the green areas rather than the text. Maybe try the family name slightly larger with a little more negative space around it and then find a way for the greeting text to stand out a little more. Either a more prominent color, larger size, or negative space in the pattern around the letters. :)

Hi, I still think they are hard to read. I'd say keep playing around with it and see what happens. Great idea!

It's pretty hard to read. I think B has better emphasis on the text, though I wonder if you could do a black background and the text in the cream and make it easier to read.

Hi, I love the idea of the sweater background, but I do think this is a little busy. Maybe if you can find a simple font that will help pop out the text? Right now it blends in so well it's a little tough to make out. Great idea!
