B for me! i feel the smaller illustration and copy on bottom fit the frame better! Hope this helps!

I love A and how it fills the whole space of the card. Very pretty design!

B for me, I like the balance of the design just a tad better than the square

I think A is working really well, however I'd like to see the artwork even bigger. Also what about a sans serif font for the name / date?

I think this works well in the square format (A). I think you have room to bring the graphic down a bit to better center it within the space.

I like the extra space your illustration gets in B - nice!

I prefer B, although the white space between that cute illustration and the text doesn't need to be so big. Have you tried moving the text up a bit higher, and perhaps having the year under the name to make more use of the available space? I really like where this is going.

Pretty palette! I chose "A" because the elements of this design seem to "fit" better in the square format... I might try scooting down the illustration & "Happy Holidays" (so there's roughly the same amount of white space at the top as there is along the left & right sides). And the family name could perhaps be a bit smaller...

A for me, B looks like there's a bit to much empty space

I voted A since it gives more emphasis to the illo, which I love, by the way. But not sold on the typography. I would simplify it a bit - do the name with the year underneath and Happy Holidays in a simpler font to better complement the bird and branches. Right now it competes a little too much.

Cute and whimsical! I'm not sure about the family name text color and font. Maybe the font would work if in a different color, like the same blue as the year and if it have lower case letter incorporated as well, but something about that part of the card is reading a little differently from the rest.

This is adorable . . . love how you used the rose foil on the branch! Have you tried this design on a rectangular format? I think it would be a great option if you did, it would give your illustration and text a lot more room to balance out.

I wouldn't mind seeing the texture you have in your blue background come through to your bird illustration (I'm a sucker for texture!) You might be able to size the name/date down a bit too, just to keep the focus on your illustration and greeting.

I agree with Taryn, something about the personalization part of the card isn't matching the rest. I think bringing down the size and making it all one color would help to make it a little more cohesive
