I have thickened up the font for the names and added a broader band - which version do you prefer?

I like the teal in A. It goes well with your beach photo. Not sure you need the BE HAPPY. I think it takes away from your cool year font.

I like the blue, and I like the font update on the bottom.

I really like the teal and the great design! I feel the 0 in teal is standing out, what if you made '17' in teal instead of 0? 'Be happy' and 0 in the neutral color? OR '2017' in neutral and 'Be happy' and 'Is going to be an amazing year' in teal.

Hi Jan, fun design! I like the unified feel between the top and bottom of A. : )

I like A - I think the names are easier to read in the sans serif.

It's a little hard to read with the textured sand in this photo. Maybe try the font you used for "it's going to be an amazing year"? Love the top though!

Hey Jan, I like the font and layout of the type at the top it works for me. I do agree with Morgan that the script at the bottom is a little hard to read against the texture of the sand in the photo. You might want to try putting a background panel shape of some kind behind the lettering in the same color you used for the 2 1 and7.

I'm in agreement that it is difficult to read. Maybe if you put a slight white fade behind it? I would also track out "it's going to be a great year" just a little to make it a little more airy to match the font above. Maybe track it out so it is even with the edges of 2017.

I'm finding it a bit hard to read. It kind of gets lost. Maybe you can grab some inspiration from the '2017' type treatment (which I love!) and put a shape down towards the bottom to hold the greeting?

2017 looks really promising, and I mean your design element :D I agree with others, the text at the bottom is easily getting lost, may be some shadow to make it pop out, or a red/gold stripe at bottom? Hey, the you've used a single photo -- and they are looking at each other, guidelines say, these are for multi photo cards specifically, please check the creative guidelines section. I would hate it if this doesn't get selected, with all that curvy line goodi-ness.
