I like B the best. I like that the ampersand is the same color and I prefer the bottom text font here. Nice revisions and best of luck!

Love those vintagey lights so much! I think I kind of like the type in C the best. Though I would add more space before and after the vertical lines for more breathing room, and I like the numbers in the lighter green. I'm also wondering if you even really need the ampersand at all - have you tried it without? Does it not read as well?

I prefer the ampersand in D. It works well with "merry" and "bright."

I chose A, but I'm wondering if there's another way to incorporate the "and"? It feels like it's just stuck there right now. What about putting the & symbol, or maybe a vertical "and" right on the blue lightbulb (in place of the light bulb squiggle)? Maybe space them differently so the blue bulb is closer to the top of the "b"?

A for me. I also don't think you need the filament in the lightbulbs. The design is busy and fun and I think it detracts from the design. Nice job!

I like the contrasting type in C. You might like to play around and see if you can give the text at the bottom a little more breathing room, it feels a bit cramped at the moment. Love those cute light bulbs!

I chose B because I like the change you made here to the "happy holiday" and corresponding text. I would keep the ampersand though, i think it works better with the design. Great revisions!

I'm going to be an absolute pain in the back side and say I like a mix of the two :) I think your "happy holidays" in B is nice, but I like your year type in A. Do you think the two of them could work together?

I'm definitely still all about the white background, but the addition of the year (as you have in B) is nice! It might be an idea to decrease the size of the family name so its side margins fall more in line with the Happy Holidays line.

super cute card! I do like the white background, but I chose Option B as it looks little more contemporary, the grey color is a great choice, and I like the way you incorporated the year. I'm not too keen on the font choice for the greeting/family name. I think something less blocky would go better with the rest of the card.

I like the simplicity of the white (I don't think you need the year and lines) and the white makes it stand out more. The ampersand seems to get a little lost because of its size, maybe replace it with "and" instead so it shows up more. I also think you should increase the spacing for Happy Holidays so it lines up with the text below it even though that may change when the name is replaced

I love your retro-looking lights and mod color-scheme! The space between the 'm' and the 'e' of merry seems a little exaggerated, maybe try kerning those in a bit?
