I prefer B, but the bottom text still looks too light compared to the boldness of the hand lettered words. I think with A, I might try a colored background vs the white. It just feels to me like it could use a little more umph. I think that's why I'm drawn more to the coloring in B.

I voted A! I really love the kraft and the green/white, but think A is easier to read/follow. Beautiful lettering, as always!

This is tough. Both lovely options, are the colorways would be endless! I chose B, it felt more 'natural' and that appealed to me.

I love the white with the kraft but the bottom details are a little hard to read. Gorgeous lettering as always!!

This is so difficult, as they are both so lovely! I selected option B! I love the white against the kraft texture. Beautiful work, Laura!

Hey Laura! LOVE the handwritten "A Baby Shower". I kinda prefer it on the Kraft, but I think the font in white for the detail text above and below is too thin. Maybe pick something that's a semi-bold or bold. I might also suggest condensing the text at bottom in terms of number of lines so you can scoot the design down. It looks a little bit crammed. Hope that helps.

I think the colorful palette and your playful type go really well together! Plus it really stands out on the white. I pick A!

Love this in kraft, B! I'm not sure the 'you are invited to' line is necessary, it seems a bit tight at the top and I think your design and the wording will still flow nicely without it :)

oh you are so so good with the lettering - this is beautiful. I picked A because it feels fresher to me. I really love the gradient effect … my only comment would be that the teal-pink-purple combo feels a little tween-ish to me. I'd maybe tweak the colors of the gradient a bit..maybe even two shades of pink plus purple, or two shades of blue plus the purple…. just my thoughts. it's so good! obviously :-)

Ohhh I really love the kraft. The white just pops so nicely on your lettering. Love it!!

Hmm. I like them both but think A is more fun and different! I'd also decrease the tracking in the name. It looks a little *too* spaced out.

I love the kraft, but what about an accent color that isn't as close to the kraft color? Like a mint green? I think it will set off the rest of your lettering nicely.

Oh, and I think you could remove the top arched line of text and let your lettering shine!

Beautiful as always laura! I feel like it might need a little something to bring the eye down through the design more. Have you tried making those last two lines the dark pink or a warm gray maybe?
