I chose A. I like the foil, but I like the colors of the nonfoil and think you have more room for versatility.

I might be in the minority here, but AI really like the warmth of the umber-gold color.

I really like A. It's just a cool color combo and make the design more unique than the gold foil in B does, IMHO.

A. The foil is pretty, but I think that the transparent element in A makes this really stand out. :)

This looks great! I like the foil but I don't think it needs it. A looks lovely! I might just make the joy solid instead of transparent.

I like the mustard-y color so A for me. I feel like the gold is very similar in tone to the peachy-blush color and gets a bit lost.

I love both but agree with Amy about doing the upper right lines in foil also :) So, leaning slightly more toward foil.

I voted A because it feels like a modern work of art with the pops of yellow! The foil version would be lovely too though! :)

This is really tough, but I voted A. I like the yellow with some transparency and I like the block of yellow balancing joy in the upper right corner. The foil is super pretty too and if you went with foil, I agree with other comments to add foil to the diagonal lines, or maybe bring back that colour block from A and make that foil?

I love A! I like that the "joy" lets the photo show through a bit, and I like the matching color block top right.

A for me. Very unique!

I like option A but think the color used in the letter "y" on option B would be a better fit for the scheme

I picked A - the gold foil is nice but in my opinion the transparency on the text really works so perfectly with the overall concept of this design.

This is so modern and fun! I might brighten up the gold tones just a little bit (or even enter this in the foil challenge) :). I also think the two type lines could come away from the black line one or two more nudges. And maybe a bit of extra tracking on "happy holidays"?
