It is a tough call but I vote B because it seems more readable. I also like the suggestions given for Option A trying the other type "be mine" and "forever" in white so they don't get lost. Phrosne suggestions about the border and colors are also good in my opinion. It's a really beautiful design, like I said tough call!

Oh such a tough choice,I like all of them,truly but I'll go with B,yet if this were I would (I'm talking about option B) have the "Valentine" or the other text written in pink since the white text is blending with the white swirls,just so that the message stands out more. I would also try this white on pink/black or white on red/black,just for a comparison. I absolutely love this,stunning! Good luck!

hi chris :) How about losing the border and enlarging the whole middle rectangle to the edges (the whole design)? i would consider white or a light pink background for valentines. perhaps light pink, gold and all the rest white.

Beautiful! I love the pops of white and wonder what it would look like with "please", "be mine" and "forever" also in white s they don't get lost in the glimmer of the foil illustration. Great job!

Difficult decision because the white text is more readable but I like it more in B. the same color as the design - maybe try the editable name in red?

I vote B, but I think you should make the editable type in a solid (non foil) color.
