Love this Neeta! The only tiny-little change is to move the flower border down, so it is the same distance on the top and the bottom!

Lovely, Neeta! Very striking! I like the contrast of the foil against the black. As a suggestion since the leaves are not filled in have you considered making the letters just an outline like the leaves? Or maybe not as "thick" of a font? Id' be curious to see for comparison.

Love all the updates you've made to this Neeta. It looks so beautiful and classic. One more small change I might suggest is adding some extra tracking to the type in white to compliment the spacing of the letters above and help with legibility (you might not even need the "love").

Lovely Neeta! My only suggestion would be to increase the kerning slightly on the name& date.

I voted A. I think simpler is better, especially because you have a more complex frame around it. It gives a good balance.

I voted for B. I think I'd like to see it as just the plain font - without the shadow.

Hi Neeta, your design has made some changes since I last saw it. Nice work. The photo and black background pair nicely. Maybe add a tiny bit of tracking to the family name, just to open it up a bit. : )

I like the white around JOY in B best, it pops nicely. I just don't know the foil rules for shift allowance? Maybe just try it with out like Erica said. Very pretty design!

I like B but I would love to see the a wider font to fill the space better like your original Naive. Just an idea. Other thing the JOY seems a little off center of the frame.

the negative space in B is wonderful. A just feels kind of off centered and busy.

I chose A because the black and gold are nice together, and the simpler photo works well with the complex border.

i like A but it feels like the frame still should be moved down a bit. i'd also love to see that one in black with white lettering (the joy could be foiled too) and the leaves in foil :)

Oh I like the red joy! I would still move everything over so there's and even amount of red on each side of the floral frame.

Hi Neeta, this is gorgeous! All of your time is paying off. The flora is lovely. I feel the family name should be centered in the border. The pipe/separator between family name and year is a little awkward, being so vertical. Maybe use a bullet to reflect your ferries? Nice work, Neeta.

Lovely Neeta! I agree with Debb about the centering. I would also stretch the border a bit because you have the space to do that and it is a bit too close to "snow" at the moment.

Nice floral frame. I think you need to center the name/date on the bottom, it looks too far right.

love your frame!!! i'm thinking it needs to be moved down just a bit. and maybe try a simple message like joy (written vertically) so everything has breathing room! :)

lovely! Although, I think you can stretch the entire design to the edge of the card--no need to have a white border around it.

This is lovely! It all feels a little off center though. I move the edge of the frame over to the right a bit so "snow" has more room on the edges - or maybe even move "let it snow" down a bit so snow falls in between the dots. then I'd align the name center with the type above it. I also don't think you need the vertical line as a divider. Maybe a dot to echo to dots in the illustration?
