There's something really lovely about it in A without the outline...I went with no outline.

B for me. I like the border. It's also wider than A, which may be why I like it more. It feels up the space better.

I picked B - love the added structure the frame gives.

The bigger picture is better, but looks nice without box

I like B! I feel like the kerning on the first line is a little wide for that spacing though. Does it not work if it's not force justified?

Sigh, your lettering is something I always look forward to seeing! A chose A - I like the gold against that background. Very nice Laura!

LOVE all of them, but if I have to pick then I like either A or B. With that particular photo I would choose B.

I said A but I kind of want to see it without a frame on it. It feels too confined in there.

I love A. The lighter background gives it a softer feel but maintains the dark boldness.

I voted A but I love B also. I agree with Lea and would really like to see what it looks like without the frame around the type at the bottom.

Really pretty! I picked A. The only thing I would consider is increasing the width of both the photo and the text box so that the border is even all around. But that's just nit-picking, it's really gorgeous as is!
