I'm voting C, but might try a textured background like a chalkboard. I think you need it to pop the design. The Kraft seems too light. I think the black chalkboard might be better for voting over the blue. You do such lovely flowers!

Blue, the details get lost on the kraft paper

I like A best, but I think it would look nice if you simplified the gold frames to a single frame.

Your details shine beautifully on the navy!

I think in 'real life' the Kraft would look lovely with the foil, but flat on a screen the detail gets a little lost. So I go A for voting!

A) Original B) Simplified with spec in circle, C) Simplified with small precious on top, D) Large Precious on top ? Which works best or does it need more simplifying?

Love the detail of the branches in A, but not sure about the background blue color or the double frame. I'd suggest keeping it simple. Against a chalkboard background might be nice or a pale beige. Hope that helps.

I chose A because that crooked frame makes it look more dynamic and lively. Nice design!

I think the typography in C works best with the photo, illustrations and layout.

C is my favorite - it feels the most harmonious. I think you could even remove the florals from the date to really let the ones around the frame shine.

I am usually biased towards a lighter background, but I really like the dark teal on this design. The foiled elements and white font pop on this background. Really nice!

I too prefer a lighter tone than a darker one. but agree with Faith. the saturated background makes the elements pop :)

Personally I think there might be a bit too much going on with the design. I like all of the individual elements, but all together they're starting to get just a bit busy for me. The double frame, the florals, the carefully organized text- each one feels like enough t carry the design on it's own. You might consider trying to simplify this design a bit.
