C seems the most balanced to my eye. I think it's beautiful!

I think A feels the most refined. I love the breathing room the flowers have around them...lets their beauty shine :)

Pretty! I like A. One possible tweak would be to reduce the illustration just a tiny bit and then increase the text at the top to make it a little more prominent. And maybe a color for the main greeting text? :)

I prefer the kraft background. To me it grounds the illustration and type.

Lovely florals! I like B overall. Maybe move your type down just a bit so it feels less pushed to the top.

I like that option C is a little different than the normal "scripty font greeting" that seems to be common.

My vote is for B, love the bold florals. I agree in maybe trying the "merry & bright" in a color from your florals.

Like the family name as the main element.

I didn't vote because I like a combo of them - Florals from A and text from B.

I like A, but I'm wondering if the text should be bit larger to balance out the lovely florals...

I prefer B personally. I like how the graphic cuts off at the end. I would put two more dot on the left hand side between the green and brown branch to fill that space.

I'm torn between option A & B. But leaning more towards A .... have you tried this design in a square format? It might balance out better.
