Oh man I'm so sad I missed all the polls but this looks freaking amazing! :) The only thing I might try is making the type the dark blue instead of the pink but I still love it this way too.

I think the colors of A & B feel a little more Christmas-y, and I chose B because the additional navy really brings out the pretty pattern to me.

C then B for me as well. I love the way the pink pops on the green. however, i see how some of the trees are the same purple color so they kinda blend in with the background. I see there is a little line to distinguish them. Maybe you could make that line slightly thicker so it looks more intentional.

C then B for me. They're all great, but the pink details get just a little lost against the reddish orange here - moreso I think than your other designs for some reason.

B followed very closely by C! I definitely like the extra contrast in B, for this colourway, and I do still love the original colours in C :)

I am still really drawn to A, Nazia! B works as well and I can see why you'd want to launch as a series in the same colourway. What if for B, you created more contrast by having larger fields of the navy? Like how in A there is more contrast between the left and right/diagonal corners. Maybe the upper right and bottom left background could be navy? Just a thought. I like the contrast in A and I feel that some of the detail gets a bit lost in B. Either way, love the design! Great job.

I love A. I really love your submissions this year, Nazia! Graphically they are so strong and you picked gorgeous colors! The only thing I would change here is: I would make the photo bigger and the white frame tad thiner. But totally up to you of course.

A. This was tough. I really like both - they're unique and modern with a retro feel. I ended up going with A because my eye kept looking at that one...maybe because of the greater contrast. Great job and good luck!

Hi Nazia! Thank you for your lovely comments about my work! :) For this one, I think I would enlarge the photo just a touch, or maybe do a couple of different proportions as a new poll to get some more feedback. I definitely like seeing more of the pattern but now I'm thinking maybe it's a tad too much and might overpower people's photos. I also think you should definitely make this into a wrapping paper design! It's so fun!

Very fun colors! I am not sure you need the outer white frame. It might be nice to let more of the background design show. Might also try a version where there's less spacing between the two lines of copy - just to compare.

So fun! I want to see more of it, though! Can you make it thicker either by downsizing the photo just a tad (and tightening up the type) or extending it to the edges?

Love this, Nazia! And I agree with the other comments to try showing more of the pattern and experiment with the thickness of the white borders and whether or not you need the outer one or not, or if it would work extending to the edge.

i love the colors and the border (at least what i can see of it). have you thought about having the photo on top - bleeding off 3 edges - and then having your pattern on the bottom? you could have a white box over top of the pattern for your text to go in. this way we might get a really good look at all the work you've done on the background ;)

There are some great comments here. I agree, taking some of the white border away to show more pattern - even eliminating the outer border. The colors are great and unique. Something different that catches the eye.

I love it. It's a departure from this usual holiday color palette, which I think is really refreshing. The only thing I might suggest is decreasing the leading between "happy holidays" and the family name/year. Lovely work!
