A feels more expansive and I am wrestling with the same thing on a design I have not submitted yet. :)

For some reason I am usually drawn to borders.. I like how neat and tidy it makes everything feel BUT... I really like this design without it! It feels more complete and stunning without the border. Not sure if that helps!! LOL

I prefer no border. Maybe make the Joy box a touch bigger to allow for the fact there is no border? Just something to try. The pattern would make a FABULOUS wrapping paper design!

Very pretty Erika, I like B with the border. I think the dimensions are similar to the smaller joy frame. One thing you may check is the centering of JOY and the frame. To me it looks like it isn't quite centered vertically within the cropped area?!?!

B. I like the contrast of the kraft and white border.

I'm the oddball here because I like A! It's unique and unexpected and I think it works really well :)
