I chose B because I like how the horizon line grounds everything and I like the icons along that line. But that said, A feels a bit more fun and I like the emphasis on the building and the shorter line of highlighted type for "The Windy City". Not very helpful ;) It's a tough one.

Great updates! What if you removed the snowflakes from the horizontal version, and lined up the icons? Not sure how it would look....but just a thought!

I like the blue blackground. I also like that the building is a little bigger in that one. It might look great to make it even bigger, maybe losing the heading. Just a thought. Super cute!

I like the addition of the blue in A, and also having the building larger so I'd lean towards A from these versions. I am also curious about Carolyn's comment about lining up all of the icons in C. I wonder how it would look with the blue added to C, and with the building larger, as in A, and the other icons all in a straight line?

Love B! I like how the icons are all equally important in this one and the orientation works well with the building.

love your illustrations! Have you tried the design in a horizontal format? That way you can also put 'Happy Holidays from the Windy City' on 1 line... and create more of a hierarchy to let your illustrations shine :)

To me it just feels like too much going on - too many fonts, or maybe it's the snowflakes? But then again I'm much better with simple designs :) Did you try increasing the tracking on "from the" at all?
