I chose A, but really like the white also. I'd put the other color in your comments as an alternative. Really nice layout and type, Chris!

A! I like the white as a color option, but navy blue is pretty and trendy right now.

B. I like the white background, cleaner, brighter and most cheerier. The graphics and typography standout.

Chris, I was curious about what's right 'New Year's" or 'new year,' so I looked it up. Haha. What you have: "New Years's Cheer" is correct, because Cheer on New Year's Day (the holiday) is possessive. If your wishing cheer for the entire new year, then you'd drop the 's.'

I think A and B work best! The type has the most room that way too. I also liked your earlier navy blue version!

So nice! I honestly had a tough time deciding! I wound up going with B. My only little nit-pick is that I don't totally love Asterism on a curve. I might try it either straight or a slightly different font.

Tough choice! I went with A because I like the contrast and the balance, but they're all very lovely!

Tough one. I like them all! I think I'm going with B as it will probably go with more photo types / colors. Very pretty ;)

I like the brown and coral combo. It is a little more dramatic than the white background.

I really like the gold and red combo, so I'd say B with red berries or D. Such a lovely design!
