The photo color (glowy look) and their expressions in D really works for me with this design!

If I had to pick one, I'd go with C for popping the most/feels fresh. A & D are close seconds for me for their sweetness.

B for me! And I take back my comment from yesterday about reserving the flurries for possibly the top half of the page, I love the dots in these other photo options as they are!

I like both the drama of A and the more subdued vibe of D. In the end, I'm going with A.

While I like the girl in red her expression isn't as joyful as I'd like to see. So D!

I voted for D.. they all look good, but I think the softer tones of the photo in D works best with the glowy frame.

Red in photos is always so cheery, but this design looks so romantic with A.

A or D both work for me. Leaning toward the photo in D… just because it's really cute.

I like B best, your typography looks great! I'm not sure you need as many 'snow' dots though. The type itself would work well on it's own here, so maybe just a bit fewer or possibly reserved for the top half of the image?

I like the layout of A the best. Maybe it's a teeeeeny bit close to the bottom though. Super pretty.

I chose B. I think that the date gets lost in the others because of the size photo composition. I think it works well stacked.

I like B because it raises the bottom text up not so close to the edge like the others and it balances better.

HOW FUN! LOVE LOVE LOVE the dots with this photo. I think I prefer the date to the left and right of happy - it adds interest and it's something different. I think it balances and keeps the text compact and readable.

I like C the best, but I don't love how his thumb is right on the year, it's just making it hard to see. I'd just nudge the photo one way or the other, or try a different one, just so your lettering can shine during voting. :)
