I would love a critique on photo layout and bottom type? Any input would be much appreciated!

D for me! The simplicity of this version puts the emphasis on your beautiful greeting.

I chose D. I think that the "Joy" is nice and detailed and the name is best simple. This will accommodate different name lengths more easily too.

I think I would pick the simpler version (D), where nothing at the bottom steals the focus of the Joy header.

the joy is really cool and unique! i'm wondering if you should simplify things though?!?! maybe try bleeding the photo off the 2 sides and making the text at the bottom more clean and simple... like all on one line in futura or something. then you could scale back the joy a bit and have some really beautiful white space surrounding it :) keep going on this... it's a great start it just needs to be pushed a bit more. good luck :)
