Hi! I am just looking for general feedback...is the custom text too large? What about the gray background? Thanks in advance for your help!

i much prefer B, the asymmetry of the wreath reads much more nicely when it isn't surrounded by the text. Great work!

Love the improvements - I voted B. I think I'd make the bottom copy even smaller, though.

I really like B - it has a nice balance. I might try A on the circle die cut and see if it works any better.

A! I think it would pair nicely with the circle die cut

I really like B. I'd be interested to see what it would look like with in lowercase type with wide tracking - I'm imagining it could look a bit friendlier to match the fun and happy illustration, but it might be a bit less business-y. Just a thought! And no, I don't think the custom type is too large.

I like the wreath elements, but it seems to me that the wreath itself is a bit unbalanced, best of luck

I do think that the custom text could be adjusted down a couple of points. I prefer white background with the green wreath, would make your nice art pop even more. good luck!

Love the wreath - I think you're right that the text could be slightly smaller, maybe just the bottom text? I like the idea of gray, but maybe a lighter gray would be better, or even a slightly warmer one.

I think your Joy is a nice size, it could perhaps be a bit thicker. I don't know about the gray – I think a white or ivory would brighten it up. One other thing to maybe try would be to scale down the size of your copy above and below the wreath so your graphic and the Joy retain the focus.
