oh wow, the depth that you have created in this is amazing! It looks so 3 dimensional!! I chose A, I think this colors are very holiday and compliment one another quite well. I would put a company/family name under "merry christmas" in a slightly smaller, less design-y font.

Oh this is cool! I like A followed by C. Have you tried it with a plainer background, to let that illustration take centre stage?

D for me :) Those colors feel so nice and warm that they're nearly leaving the page! I don't think you need the background texture covering the whole background area. It's neat how, at the top, the tree and background texture are interplaying, but maybe after the top third the background could fade out?

I really like B. I think the contrast is nice. I would just give the letters some extra tracking/letter spacing to compliment the spacing of the letters in the script. I might also bring the pink up some more, or make the tree a little taller so the blue overlaps and gives the tree a bit more grounding - or maybe it just needs a dark blue trunk?

I liked B and D equally, but chose D because it had more traditional colors. Nice design.

You don't need the border line around the rectangles.
