Definitely A! Looks much better with this photo - you see the beautiful detail of the lace. I think introducing needs to be much smaller though. the font doesn't quite work with the lace. Maybe just remove it and scoot everything inside the lace up?

I'm voting A. I really like the white lace on the dark photo. I would love to see it without the introducing. That lettering and the lace are really competing with each other, and the lace is really beautiful. I also think the date is very crowded. Maybe try combining it with the stats on the left justing using numbers instead of spelling out January. Or maybe just add the last name on Briar Rose and replace the parent info with the date. Just some thoughts!

Thank for the support on picking the portrait layout, Now the size of the "Introducing" and Placement of the Name? Also B the lace is smaller size on the border.

Carol, I think your super lovely design is getting lost by the photo. I'd try to pick one that is simpler - maybe with one baby that's more airy. I also might try a version where the introducing is taken out - and maybe the name at top and stats on bottom and see what happens from there. I did a lace design a few years back and I'm working on another now - they turn out so lovely esp in letterpress!

Layout Portrait verses Landscape? And Smaller Introducing?

A for me - although the introducing typeface is fun, I don't think you need it. The lace is so fancy as well as the picture. I'd keep it simple for this layout. Less is more def applies on this one

I think C is more balanced

Voted C, I think the layout works better and shows off more of the photo with the font choices as you have now. Although I do like the landscape layout with the image and photo, but I'd play around with the font some more. With such a delicate lace detail I think a more delicate font would complement it well.

Definitely C. The wording in A&B coves the photo too much.
