I voted for B - I love the multi-color. I think this would be perfect without the birds and leaves - that pot is adorable and could be larger and more of a focal point alone on a portrait layout, IMO. Good luck!

How did you know I was avoiding work today? ;) I love A! I think it's stronger with one big watercolor swash. I love the hand drawn feel to this - it's lovely!

Love this Carol, and the one color background of A sets off your illustration so nicely. Here in California, it is only 6AM and a full workday ahead. Can't wait, haha. :)

Such a clever idea...You always have such great concepts! I'm drawn to B, because of the colors, but A is a close 2nd.

I vote A. (I could also see B, but with just one of the elements with watercolour, like maybe the flower in a cup at the bottom.)

I choose B. I love the naive simplicity of this design & the soft various colors gel together very nicely in B as compared to others :)

I vote A. But I wonder if the flower or the pot had a touch of pink?

These are all very sweet! I like B best with the playfulness of the different colors, but would consider leaving the birds out.
