Hi Lisa, Thanks! I'm choosing the black only because foil is not movable. If the customer wants to move it they have the option and still get a lot of lovely foil all around.

I voted C. A is my second pick. A very pretty and detailed border design!

I like B! I would definitely keep the text non-foil to allow for alternate greetings and the red really pops against everything else. Really cute!

I like the black in C to contrast the foil.

C. I think the foil and the red text compete with the border too much in the others.

I like C. I might try a gray text instead of black to tone it back a bit. :)

Your frame botanicals are so nice and delicate looking – perfect for a baby photo :)

The festive border seems to call for a light script. Chose D.

I chose C because of the more airy-feeling script, but I wouldn't mind seeing it shrunken down by maybe 5% & coloring the text something similar to the gold foil color as the black is a bit harsh for such a delicate frame. Very pretty botanicals :)

D works and looks nice with that frame. Also doesn't take up too much of the photo.

The silver is pretty. I'm not sold on the script here.

Love A and love the frame. Agree with Amy on thinking about a different script.

Beautiful details. The photo you chose and the soft blue background compliment your design.

I agree the kerning could be increased on the bottom line of text.

beautiful design, loving the floral icons. I would only suggest tracking out the family name and year - seems a bit tight.

This is absolutely stunning! agree with Marta--the name and year look too tight. Other than that, it's gorgeous!

This is really pretty! I might even just let the foliage be the hero and put the Peace and Love as customizable type in line with the family name. I feel like the photo is getting a bit overwhelmed. I would also track out the serif font you've used a bit to make the letters easier to read.

This is really, really lovely. My only suggestion would be to maybe - maybe, if you feel like it; and if not, just ignore this :) - lighten up the gray in the background to give it a little more contrast compared to the gold. Lovely work.
