I have a few color options. Thoughts on switching the main image with one of these?

what if you mixed the black design with hits of color? I am not partial to any of the options below because I feel like they water things down too much. Your original design is just so lively and whimsical and that's what I love about it.

I love it black and white and agree with Carole. I probably would go all color, maybe just the name and the 2 birds possibly??? I could see all three in a mint green, very 20's color palette, black and mint.

This is so sweet Heather.. I feel like this is nice, but if you add a pop of color, maybe for the name or the birds, it would make everything pop..! Hope this helps.. :)

Ooh, and if you don't want black with a pop of color, I would vote for color option number 3.. :)

Ok I have a few options. Please let me know thoughts on the coloring. :) Black was hard to pair with equally dynamic colors :)

This is wonderful, Heather! I like the one with the aqua name thes best, although I would actually keep the name in black... Good luck!!

Love the design - and really like the black and gold one below! I kind of feel like it needs another dot or something on the left end of the swirlys, it feels like it comes to an abrupt halt.

I am partial to the one on the far right - tan background and blue type, pops of orange. Just love the combo, Heather!

to clarify - I was liking your one with the aqua name that was a mix of black and color (with black name instead). Also, I love the black and white version! Good luck!

I love the black with hits of color! I can't decide if I like the second or third one better.
