I'm in love with B! You did such a great job with these options Jan! I think the larger text in B helps balance your entire design nicely at the base.

Hi Jan, love the Roman numberals! Very cool. I would love to see the entire year in the same foil. : )

I really like the fonts as-is. If you want, you could do a poll using a handwritten calligraphy script to offset the bold date type, but I think it looks great!

I like the the roman numerals a lot! It feels like the supporting type could use some generous tracking.

I really like the Roman numerals, maybe consider kerning a bit for the rest of the text and spacing it out a bit more

Loving this Jan! I agree with the other ladies on maybe trying a different style font and opening up the spacing between the letters/words for both lines. (I also think a slightly thicker font (maybe increase the stroke a tiny bit in the current font you have) would balance out your strong roman numerals nicely).
