I've made some major changes to the brush strokes. The bottom left is the "original" version, and I wasn't sure it was working, so I've tried these other two versions. Please let me know which one you prefer. Thank you!

So beautiful!! I voted A because I like the landscape layout a touch better and I think the picture is perfect with your design. Amazing!

I'm liking A the most! I feel the landscapes look better. C would be my second choice.

A is just the one for me. this is GORGEOUS! Love the foil accents. It totally adds that extra WOW! and the photo enhances the design.

I picked A, though I feel all layouts look good with their own uniqueness. I think A may be able to suit a wider range of baby images in that design.

I picked A: I love your colorway in A and B; the layout works really well in all 3 submissions, but I remember reading in the challenge pdf that people usually tend to use more landscape photos, so this might be a reason to pick your landscape layout. And because the photograph in A complements your design so well!

So pretty! I voted A. Also, to me, it feels like the design is a little bottom-heavy. Just a thought!
