Hey Kelly! I really love your designs. Have you ever considered allowing a bit of extra padding/'breathing room' around the edges of the layout? I always feel like a bit of extra padding around all the elements in the layout can go a long way. Awesome work! It really stands out.

Thanks for your feedback so far! I've tried some new name layout ideas and tried to make it stand out more. It's a little tough, but let me know your thoughts on that (original name layout in B). I also spread out the black lines around the circle a touch more in D and added gold foil to the frame around the photo in a couple. The votes were really split between these two colour versions in the first poll.

A is my first choice. The whole thing just works beautifully on A. D's the 2nd choice. Beautiful work Kelly!

I love C! My only little suggestion would be to make "Welcome Amelia Grace" all one size. Everything is so symmetrical that when you have the bigger name off-center, it throws things off a bit.

Yum! Love this one so much. Everything works together really well and the hierarchy of info is perfect.

I love the contrast of both A and D. I just wish the name were more prominent in the design. I'm not sure how you would do that though. Nice design!!

I'm a fan of the touch of gold in B (though I think they all work really well). I think the name fits in this one, but I'd try it with a few other photos to make sure it works well with different options. Gorgeous design, Kelly! :)

I like D. I wonder what it would look like if instead of having "we joyfully welcome" at the top you had something like "welcome cassandra so and so." Then you could take the name out of the photo. one small thing i would do is move all of the dark little swirls around the photo out a bit more away from the gold circle (think the same spacing as in the top and bottom design elements). hope this helps a little :)

I like A. and it would look great with foil as in B. It's so elegant.

This is really pretty Kelly! I like B but maybe change the date etc to a different color so it's not confused as gold. Nice job!

B. I would use the gold foil. I like the lightness of the blush pink. Great design details.
