I love A. I think you could even just have the larger joyful. And maybe the bottom line it white like b?

I voted A, because I think your type treatment works best in that version, but I think the non die-cut edges of B work better than the die-cut :) Great edits!

I love the simplicity of A - I don't think you need all the extra text to get the joyful idea across!

Great edits! I think the more freehand look of the photo border in D works really well with your floral illustrations, and the dark gray background works a little better than the pink.

I like the whimsy of the multiple circles in option D. It feels more Merry!

I love the funky and fun border of D. I might just make the photo and circle element a bit smaller to give more breathing room on the edges.

This is so cheerful! I wonder if you might consider playing with the colors a little bit to make it for holiday-festive. Lovely!

I agree that maybe working with the colors to make them more festive. Even changing the background to more of an ivory/tan and the purple flower to red might do the trick! I would also take out some of the swashes in "merry" - at least on one of the Rs. You could also scale back the circle a little to give it a tad more space on each side.

Love the photo choice, kelly. I like the non-traditional colors but it would be fun to see what other colors you tried. The bottom line has a fun font choice, I wonder what Merry Christmas looks like in that font?
