A: I like the year moved in! And this is so tiny & feels silly to say but I really like that vertical line separating the name & date :)

C: I like the frame to close out the design as I also prefer without the swashes. That year is still floating to me: would you consider moving it left over the "-es" to anchor it a bit? I think that would also complement the family name being on the bottom left of the script too.

Hi Amy, The full bleed on A. Wondering if you need the year? Can you toss up an option without it? : )

A. I think it would work best with any of the dye cut shapes should a consumer choose to use it.

I prefer no swashes, but it makes the 2016 seem a little stray out there. Maybe on the other size of the y?

A for me, but I think you need a full bleed. The font gives that warm and laid back feel like the photo - great match-up. The year I think needs a better home tho.

A - but full bleed. And the year bugs me a bit, maybe center it with the s?

A: I 5th or 6th Lea's suggestion to try moving the year to the right of the Y descender so that everything is within the width of the script. I'm wondering if the photo could be moved to the right a few points. The "grassy" area isn't even on both sides & that bugs me a bit ;)

This looks awesome amy! So it's really picky but I would move the name line over so it was centered between the swash and the edge of the photo, either that or maybe even aligned with the w? Something about it feels just the tiniest bit off.

Wow that took me a while to spot! lol. I think I like the swooshie swashes in A :) But shorter like B? also there's something odd about the angle of swash on the end of the s.

I chose A. I think it would look nice if the W and S had similar angles to their swashes.

Hi Amy, like the soft curve of A. Love the photo choice, too. haha, Dawn! "Swooshie Swashes" would be a good design name.

I chose A – nice and flowy....nice technical term there :) I love the border, though it's hard to say without seeing them side by side.
