There is a book by that title with a very similar cover...

Hi Alicia, this is Katy from the Minted Team. We've seen the book cover you are referencing and while there are a few common elements, overall we don't think that this design is too close to the cover of the book. Design integrity is very important to us, so we are always happy to look into things. Thanks for participating in our process!

Hummm....I think the white, but if you do foil for the text you could also do foil for the circle...decisions decisions :)

B definitely. The white edges in A takes away the focus on the overall design.. Lovely work!

Definitely B for me! I like how this option focuses on the photo and let's that be the main emphasis.

The background is so lovely! I don't think you need to leave any white space on the top or bottom. Just let the blue cover the whole thing :)
