comments from Ria:

Vintage hand-lettered 1-photo birth announcement riffs off of your 2015 new arrival being a future 2033 grad. Works well for your retro boy or girl!

This is where I've landed... a good neutral option that prominently features baby with some sweet little "easter eggs" nestled about. Thank you for all your input and support of the process! xo

I like A. I think the lettering stands out better than against the blue background

I like A Ria. The design has some really great elements. I would consider making the photo much larger and working the design around it. Just a thought.

I like B. The colors actually work really well together. Nice details.

I like A but i would enlarge the photo (maybe even make it rectangular) and eliminate some of the little "doodles" on each side :)

I like B because of the contrast. But it comes of as blue on my screen which might then make parents of girls choose another option? Great design!

I like the colors in both, but A works best for me.
