Thanks for the info, Chris! I like Option B – I think it fits better somehow with the illustrations – pretty but not fussy. :) And I would also be curious to see it with the colors in Version 1; I think the dark grey with the gold and red is really pretty.

B feels like it goes a bit better with the style of the illustration. This is just so gorgeous, Chris!

This is so pretty! Love this one. Although I do like how the HH and The Hendersons look in A. Maybe move Happy Holidays a bit to the left or play around with the placing?

I like them both, Chris! I voted B because I agree with some of the other comments that the handwritten type suits the illustrations, but I think they both work well! Beautiful!

Wonderful colors and illustrations. The only thing that is a bit distracting IMO is the point at the top of the flourish after the letter y in 'merry'. What if you continued the hook at the bottom of the y and looped it around to connect it with the curved flourish but eliminating the pointy part of it? Hope that makes sense. Very lovely design overall!

I don't really see a difference in the backgrounds, but I chose option B because the smaller text is easier to read. Very pretty!

I like A better, the type and the elements stand out more against dark blue.
