The dove is beautifully illustrated with such soothing colours. I would probably tweaked the dove smaller and make the photo bigger. The dark olive leaves and the red heart are competing for attention from the photo. Wondering how it would look like if you remove it.

I think this looks awesome flipped! I went with A just because I think that gradient is so pretty.

Usually I would go with the bigger photo but I love A!

I went with A – I was back and forth a bit, but I think A stands out because you don't see that arrangement as often. Also your background is really nice, so I like that you see more of it in A. The dove also appears to sit a bit more comfortably in the space provided in A.

Beautiful, Shannon. I like your design but it doesn't necessarily feel religious to me. Maybe save this for the holiday challenge or add something more in keeping with the religious theme? Just a thought.

this is stunning! i feel like the dove is competing a bit with the photo though. can you scale back your painting a bit? it would also allow for some more white space at the top which would be a nice balance to the bottom. :)

Amazing! This would make a fantastic nonphoto card :) Have you tried it flipped? With the bird and gorgeous art on the top and the blue type where it is but with the white in the background?
