Hi Anne, I'm in the process of voting and this caught my eye. Wow, this is an adorable nesting doll design. I especially love your color palette and font choices, it all flows together so perfectly. Good luck!

I picked A - love the balance of the flowers and using text on the small doll really fits with the idea overall.

Really cute design! I prefer C... I like how the registry is the last line i see, it is quite cute on the little baby in A but I think in terms of legibility it will be better remembered as the last line you see.. once again, really cute design!

A for me. I like the more unique layout, but do agree that it might be tricky with the amount of info/spacing. Maybe you could put the reply info on the baby's belly to give you some more breathing room for info? Just a thought. :) Super cute!

I picked A- the text over the doll is such an unusual layout and it works so well! I've love to see the doll made just a touch smaller though so there's a bit more breathing room at the bottom.

I like the type layout in C, and I think the position of the dolls looks like mom's hugging. Cute!

I was torn between A and C but chose A as it's more obvious there's a mom/child vibe!

B for me! It has the clearest hierarchy to me: adorable illustration, followed by mom-to-be's name, followed by pertinent info.

So adorable! I think B is the best layout and most practical since customers tend to put a ton of info on baby shower invites :)

I like B. Seems less crowded than the other two and it makes the illustration shine.
