i like this much better. I think the message can be moved over a tad, it's a little to close to the edge. I'm not sure how I feel about this shade of green. I love the green that you have on your pine wreath entry. I'd play around with a navy blue too. See what you think looks the best.

i don't like these colors. You're probally so over all the color suggestions but what about a winter white (cream-ish white) and rich green? with the inside of the flowers a rich red? It goes back to your original colors sort of...I liked the layout in version 7 but i like the type treatment you have now...the two lines and the fonts you chose look good together.

What about a black or charcoal background? The type still isn't working. Try it all centered. The script competes with the illustration too. Maybe try the sans but cap/lower case?

The floral is very pretty, but I would recommend toning down the colors. At the moment, this card makes me think about the tropics/ Hawaii rather than the holidays.

i like the type a lot!! I'm not a fan of these colors for this challenge. What about a light blue with red flowers? Or Gold and red? I'd think a version of this with the evergreen branches and cranberries of the dark blue entry you have would look beautiful. If you do it, do it as a seperate entry b/c i love the florals of this a lot.

I like your floral very much! Might try using just one maybe at an interesting angle so you have more room for your type. The type needs a little TLC as it feels squashed in the corner - I'm not a huge fan of lobster and mixing it with lithos feels off to me. If this is a farm, maybe a more rustic type treatment and background would evoke more of the feeling. Just my two cents here.

one more mention - color: the stark white really overpowers the message. I would try to tone that down some, although if you use one branch, that might do the trick. I'd also try some subtle color as well. Maybe all your copy could be the thing that pops in white instead. The green is the same value as the red so it's hard to see.
