I *think I'm going with the navy/foil. Which photo do you prefer? D is the original, A is a closer crop of D.

I really like the ornament silhouette to hold the swirly type, it really finishes off the design! I love the layout of D, but I'd also love to see that layout with the gold of C. Either one is my choice!

I voted C because that's what I was immediately drawn too. I really do love D too though. The red in the artwork and the photo switch change the feel of it so much. Tough choice!

Love C! I agree with Jennifer that this option + photo might be nice with the layout/ white border of D. :)

All are so pretty! I chose D for the brightness and contrast between the red type and blue background but you can't go wrong with any of them

Man this is tough. I really like them all actually! But I do feel like D is the most festive, so that's what I chose. Nice work!

All of these look great! B is my favorite since the navy is so striking. Did you try this version with photos from A or D?

That poll is so hard! There is not one colorway that I don't like in all 4 submissions! So I chose C, because the foil version is wonderful, and I love the background color. But the foil works really well on white too. And on the dark blue. Not to mention the red in D... I'm afraid I'm not much help...

I'm still flip flopping with this one! Navy/foil (B) is submitted in the non-photo challenge. White (A) beat navy (B) in the first poll but not by much. I added some of the ornament designs to this poll based on feedback and there's a fifth version here. I've been struggling with pretty vs festive with a few designs.

Kelly, all six versions are beautiful, this is a tough choice, I'd be delighted to receive any of them in the mail. I'm leaning between A, D and F. If I have to choose I choose D. Good luck, so beautiful.

Both B and D are gorgeous BUT have to say I love the blue ornament layout for its unique handling of typography and color-so I am choosing the blue ornament layout!

Hi Kelly, I can see your dilemma. They all look nice. B is the winner for me, the red is fitting with merry and "bright" :-) My next would be A. For some reason the darker backgrounds are looking best to my eye.
