Adorable. I do, however, find this design quite busy. Maybe the white border should be in foil and not the photos? Not sure if the photos need a border with all the grey behind them. "William's" name is not easy to read and comes secondary to his stats. If you are going for a scribbly sketch look, you may want to do away with the dashed line as it's making it look more like a quilted/embroidered aesthetic. If you are going for scribbly, maybe try it around the border? Having that big scribble in the middle of your layout, eats up the real estate that could be better served for the name & baby stats. There is much fun in this design and it definitely comes through that you are having fun putting this piece together. Great job and I hope this helps :)

I like the layout of the wording in option A, but the borders from option B.

I chose A. But I don't think the extra embellishment on the "welcome" is necessary.

I chose A. I might simplify a bit by getting rid of the extra embellishment.

I like A. I'd maybe try a different font for the baby's name just so it's a bit easier to read.

I picked A, I think it is more balanced :) Best of luck in the challenge!
