I kept the old version in option A, but think I'm opting for a different colorway. Also polling for fonts and placement of the text in the other options.

I prefer A because I like the detail in the flowers.

Should I consider a different colorway? Bad use of the kraft paper? Too old fashioned? In need of more holiday-like flora? Thanks for your feedback!

I like the illustration in the B the best - although, I think the kraft paper doesn't work here. I would maybe just try it on white. I would also pay attention to how you're doing the shadows in the illustration; some of the items (like the bow) use drop shadows for depth, while others (like the flowers) don't. I would just make it consistent. Either use drop shadows for depth everywhere or just get rid of them altogether. (Personally I lean towards no drop shadows - so I would just use a darker shade of brown to show depth in the bow instead.) I hope that helps! I love the idea of this for a moving announcement.

I love the branch wreath! Ditto what Haley said. I chose B. One thing you might consider is to lighten the lighter parts of the wreath a little to give more contrast, and to maybe incorporated the darker tones in the lighter leaves like you did in the darker. Maybe reduce the font size a bit.
