C is my favorite. I think the typography works well with the layout.

Picked A as the organic foliage plays well with the irregular round shape. I also like the delicateness of the script type for the name. But with that said, I like D for the unique shape of the photo. The type for the name feels a bit harsh though so maybe try D with the name in the script font? And I think if you go with A or D then C could totally be submitted as another entry. I often see people submitting variations of their illustrations.

It's D for me - the frame shape and foliage work really well together... but I prefer the calligraphic name on the others :-)

The first poll was about 50/50. After playing a bit more and taking feedback into consideration, I've made a few tweaks. I know I am starting to lean towards one specifically but am excited to hear what the community thinks. I'm also wondering if the spearmint colored one could be it's own entry or are they too similar?

I've voted A as the botanical elements feel a little overpowering in B, but have you tried B with the botanicals in one, pale shade? Maybe?!

B for me - something different. I might just have text at the bottom though.

Sharp! The background in gorgeous! Have your tried simplifying the photo cut-out? Perhaps make it a circle?
