Oh I like this layout! The circle reminds me of a christmas ornament. I'm almost wondering if it would work if it were a little smaller and centered with a thin or dotted line at the top to make it look like it was hanging. Could be too much.

I really love all the updates you made! Part of me wonders what it would look like with just a dat bit of color in the graphic elements. Either, way, I love it as B&W too

Love the update! I might make the lettering graphic a little smaller to give it some nice whitespace around the top and bottom. The bottom type also feels a little stretched vertically - it could just be the font. I might try something with a small caps like mrs. eaves or serlio. You could also try just making the font you have a couple points smaller and spacing the tracking out a bit.

Your lettering is stunning! I'm not even sure you need the border around the image as I think it competes with the other elements a little too much. I'm also finding the family name a little hard to read. What if you made it a simple serif face? I could also see this with the photo full bleed on the bottom and the family name maybe curving around the bottom of the graphic in a simple typeface.

I agree with Dawn about the changes she suggested.
