I love the changes! I actually came here to your page because the last version that I saw had clouds and sky on the top and bottom and it felt fragmented to me. I was going to suggest doing what you did! The only thing I would suggest, if you have time and desire, is the flow doesn't feel quite right. It might be the photo - it feels like it's floating. Maybe try switching the top and the bottom, or swapping it out for a different photo. I love how the sun looks. The colors are great and the style is very Eric Carle. Beautiful! Good luck!

I like b with the background color of d - is it different from b? Hard to tell on my phone but it looks brighter

I like B, but maybe a slightly brighter blue? The sun feels right being on top. :)

I've been trying to put my critique in words for you all day! Sorry I'm so slow. need more coffee... :) I was totally going to suggest a brighter blue - love the one in D! I actually really like the sun moved to the bottom - it feels like the rays guide the eye up to the image. Though I'm also wondering if it would work if you flipped it in the versions at the top so the rays guided the eye down. And maybe the type in the sun could be tweaked a bit - I might try "new year new baby" in the white arch and "welcome" in the yellow script underneath. Phew that's a lot lol! Oh and I love the names in red and white it feels a bit more tied together with the rest of the piece than the blue.

I chose B. I think the info is easier to read on the bottom!

I voted B as i think the green is too much of a transition. B is calmer and would work with more photos.

Hi Jackie, love this, it radiates joy! Only I feel that the green bottom is a bit too much, maybe have it in one of the colours of the upper (sunny) part, maybe just the light blue? Just a thought …

B. I like the text updates - much easier for me to read. I went with no space around the photo. It will look more seamless with different shapes.

I chose D. I love the colors and it's a unique design. Consider centering the he sun. I find it slightly distracting to read the 'wecome baby new year' text and think it would work great more centered. Good luck!

This is really cool, love your technique. I think the sun is fighting with the photo though. Using option A, I would make it smaller so it's just peeking over the white frame of the photo and lose the text in the sun. Maybe just add it then above the name.

I like your texture! If this were mine, I think I'd just have your clouds in the sky and the grass. The sun is a little over powering and takes away from your photo. If you decide to keep the sun, maybe try a different photo, one that fills the frame better or is more of a close up to balance everything out.

Lovely bright colors, maybe consider extending the sun rays past the photo frame so sun looks circular
