Here is the design of the wreath in red. Thanks so much for your support minties.

It really is a pretty wreath, although I think it is a little bland. Maybe a red wreath would make it a bit brighter.....gold prehaps? Not sure what it is.......The card just seems a all a bit neutral.

Really lovely wreath Neeta! My only thought is that I feel the 3 different script/italic style fonts are all competing with one another. I would recommend trying a simple sans serif for the year and 'from the Andersons' text. :)

I still love that wreath! I would glo white behind the JOY. Have you tried it with the photo full bleed on half?

B looks great! Maybe try a version with the year below the family name, just for comparison. It's fine as is tho ;) I thin the creamier background gives the photo a more antiqued look, so that's why I'm going with B ;)

Have you tried using a rustic/organic non-script font for JOY? Just an idea.

Hi Neeta, I was wondering if you could try the design without the wood grain. And if you can shift the child photo frame a little more to the left. So that, you can increase the size of the joy and and the floral frame! Just a suggestion! Let me know if it helps!

Seeing it with the woodgrain behind it, I'm thinking you may have been right to use the solid light green, so the "joy" stand out. Sorry. One more thing - can you carry the woodgrain all the way to the edges (it looks like it stops short on the right side). Good luck!!!

nice, Neeta! Have you tried it with the woodgrain showing through the middle of the wreath (rather than that solid green)?

I like C. The red wreath seems a bit heavy and overpowers the "joy" somewhat, so I might try to make the foliage look more sparse. :)

Neeta - I would shift the photo in opt D to the left, giving equal white space around the design elements and photo.

I like D but I would change the photo as it looks like the baby is reacting to your design at the moment :)

I like the changes. I think the wreath look equally good in red. Take a careful look at the overall spacing of the design and layout. =)

D for me. I wonder if this might work better in portrait orientation instead, with joy at the top, then the photo, then the greeting. In landscape, I feel like the two main objects compete whereas in portrait, one might lead you to the next more?

I picked C - the tilted frame and landscape photo fill the space the best in my opinion.

I'm voting C. Since you went single photo as compared to the first round, maybe now you could wrap the wreath around the photo. It is fine as is, just kinda wondering now that I see with the single photo. Good job!

Photo from A. Layout B. Maybe try shifting the family name and year centered under the wreath and enlarge the photo to fill that space. Try the wreath in gold?

I went with C, though I might use the photo in A (but the existing one works well, too).

Pretty wreath! I might try it with a larger single portrait photo, Don't be afraid to let the wreath overlap slightly onto the photo. =)

Hi Neeta, If you're going with multiple pics, I might suggest maybe removing the blue banner. The joy wreath is fine I think, but it just seems off with the banner since it's the only thing touching the edge. I think the design would feel more open without it. You could try the year under the family name. Love the wreath and kudos for the multiple pics!

Neeta, I agree with Melissa. I think you could even pare it back to the wreath with a single photo.
