This is revised to have only the copy required for the challenge. I think it's cleaner, curved type or angled. What's your thoughts?

Love the way you've simplified this design! I picked A - the text is much more readable in this version and really lets your decorative phrase stand out.

Yay! A is much better, in my opinion!

I like the text flow of A best.

A for me - more readable. Have you tried having that editable copy just straight - that might be really nice!

I picked A, but I would probably try the personalized text straight across rather than at an angle. I would also maybe consider minimizing the tiny curly flourishes off the letters and omitting the arrow through 'sky' - I'm not sure they really add much to the design (like the ones off the top of the 'k' and 't"). I think it might look cleaner and more modern without the tiny flourishes, but it really is beautiful lettering!

I chose A. The simpler type on an angle is much more readable.

I think I'd go even simpler to let the "sky is the limit" stand out more! What about removing the bottom photo, and placing both lines of text at the bottom, in a straight line rather than curved? Maybe in three separate lines (name, school, class)?

Do you like the white background verses the blue? Copper border or not?

Definitely the white background. I think I'd try it without the border and the text in gray/black. And the small photo is a little distracting, it takes away from the beautiful text. Maybe try the 2 photos smaller and next to each other?

I like that B is simplified a bit. Would love to see it in white.

I picked C - the white background feels more open and light to me.
