I love the wwatercolor in the flowers, so I chose A. I might play around with the family name and year. Maybe make it a little smaller? I don't want to take anything away from the beautiful florals!

I like the gradient, and A version a bit better. Maybe play around with you writing. It seems like a lot is going on there

B for me! I really like that background you have, so the more the better :) I think this design could be strong even with just the background color, maybe you could have the copy reversed out of the background then?

B for me. I like seeing more of the gradient and expect that it would look impressive printed. B is just more dynamic compared to A.

Beautiful watercolors! I love A for its lightness. I think the type is a bit off though. Maybe a color that's not quite as harsh. Or maybe all the text needs to arc around the photo?

A for me. The colors pop nicely and look very pretty with the white background.

Love the watercolor florals of A. I would try to simplify your type a bit. Maybe just two arced lines a little further from the photo in a slightly bolder font. Line 1: "New Year. New Addition" Line 2: The Miller Family • 2017 It just feels a little busy right now. :)
