B was in the lead in the last poll followed by A...but B only has a border around the colour, not the photo. Thoughts on borders? No borders in A or borders on both photo and colour in C? A would allow for non foil colourways like D. I left D in there because it's been popular in earlier polls.

I like C, followed by A. I'm liking white space this challenge, so I'm rolling with it ;) Beautiful work!

I voted C: I think the white border around both handlettering and photograph gives balance to the design as a whole, and the colorway works really well with the photograph you picked. It's very sweet.

I chose C, followed by A. I like the border around the whole thing if you are going to do it at all. Very pretty design!

Polling this one again with the most popular options. Foil or non-foil colourways? A was originally full bleed but tried it with a white box. Some of you wanted to see a version of D with no white border (C). Thoughts? Full bleed photo option below...

I was torn between C&D. I like the water color background for sure - very nicely done! I think D would work better maybe if the water color went from top to bottom and there was white only on the sides...or maybe if you did the photo with white space like the watercolor?? I do like the white space, but do not think it balances with the photo as is. But it's a FAB card overall!

I like C because it can have fun colorways. The only feedback I have is to make the small type slightly thicker as it's really hard to read.

Do you prefer full bleed photo (A/B) or the colour field in C/D?

Im torn between A & B but I think B wins for me. I would also try how the golf foil works in B. Charmer!

I like C the most with the beautiful texture. You could try making the white border on the left side a little thinner...?

A is great! I think it can even work as a non full bleed option since the white area almost looks like a white rectangular background already.

C for me! LOVE the textural watercolor behind the design. I do think the thick white border draws your eye, so maybe try a version where it is either thinner or not present?

I am completely torn between A and D. The colors and choices of pictures to complement your design are perfect to me! I picked A because I love the white background, and the foil option in this one.

I love option B, but I think C might be more versatile in terms of types of photos customers can use. Excellent work on all of them!

I'm going with B, but like A as well. The texture in B is beautiful, but the white border isn't working for me.

I chose C and A is a close second. I feel more people would have images that resembled C. Unless they did a professional photo shoot with whit background, they would have images resembling A. Maybe I am over-analyzing. Still, lovely designs.
