I settled on the kraft based on the poll, despite all the love for the blue, because it felt most accommodating to more photos. Gave it some rounded corners, too, after I saw it with rounded corners in a photo preview on my phone, hah! :) Thank you to everyone for voting in my poll & for all your helpful feedback! It's come a long way since last year's iteration.

This turned out amazing! The rounded corners are really a nice touch - yay for phone previews! :) There's also always the alternate colorways for the blue and orange so not all hope is lost for the ones we get attached to.

I really like the feel of B. the orange just throws me off a bit and makes me think of thanksgiving and fall. Maybe do the same thing but with the blue? I also really like it without the with love, but then again I'm a huge fan of centering things and negative space lol. They're all just ideas though - trust your gut and go with what feels right. At the end of the day it's still a design that represents you :)

C for me. I think the neutrals in C will work well with the greatest number of photos.

I personally love the great colors in A, but I think B would be a good option for voting. :)

I think the white background in C feels fresh, maybe try the text in red too? :)

Hi Ling, love the details of your border! Tough choice but went with B.

Red feels like it goes with the "warmest wishes"

I think you're right! - I do like the red text, but the contrasting colour works better, and lets the border stand out :)

I voted C. I think I prefer it slightly more. A is almost more Thanksgiving colors. B would be my second pick.

I like B. Would you consider a dark navy or at least play with the colours in the photo to complement with the frame?

I like B for voting. Maybe even try red with blue or white leaves? I might also try it without the "with love" or the dots around the name. It might add a bit more balance.

I was playing around with colors some more & threw in some texture while I was at it. I think I'm really liking the kraft, but again: can't decide! I also took out "with love" as per Dawn's suggestion but I think I want to keep it. Also, that inner-frame around the photo in C should be white but I forgot to change it. Just pretend it's white :P I'm leaning towards B with the tone-on-tone colors. Thank you all for your thoughts & input!
