Have you tried white on the black and white photo? The red vibrates quite a bit.

I picked A but I would move everything up (except the botanicals) so the design is centred vertically.

A for me, but I agree, it should be moved up a bit. :)

Hi Marta, This is exquisite. All three are appealing but I"m going with A, I like the structure of the frame and the organic flow of the flora. Very nice work.

I voted B because I feel like it would give more flexibility to the customer if they wanted to change the sentiment.

like the way the rejoice integrates into the design- echoes the star atop a decorated tree- good luck!

I like A! I think a different photo with a simpler background would work well with your botanicals and border.

B for me, but I think I would make all of the copy gray so the botanicals remain the strong color.

B for me! I might tinker with having the text at the bottom be only two lines instead of three? You could remove "love" or make the family name smaller and move the year up a line. Something to try. :)

My first thought was A, because the box is unique. But the more I looked at it, I prefer B for the airiness.

I'm picking B because I think it lets your florals remain the focus.

I like B. I might mimic the copy at the top in the bottom and only have the one line - the henderson family • 2016. It would allow the photo and those gorgeous florals to really be the hero of the piece.

Gorgeous florals! The script in the box feels really restrained. I might make it the same as the family name. Or maybe try a version without the box entirely and have it in red script above the photo?

I agree with Dawn. Maybe using a different script or freeing it from the box would help!

Your foliage around the frame is beautiful! The descender on the 'j' is fighting with the box a bit – maybe you could fiddle with the type form a bit to get it off the red?
