Thanks, Everyone, for your help--red it is! I also spaced things out just a hair more. Jennifer--I tried your suggestion, but for a variety of reasons it didn't work well--I appreciate the suggestion, though :)

Great stacked design, Karen! I really love it! I like the joyful in red, but I would like to see how it looks with 'new' in red and 'year' in green. If it's too much, then I'd say keep joyful in green. Also, I feel like the name banner would feel more balanced if it's in the lower half of the letters.

I think I prefer B. The red joyful brings your eye down.

lovely, Karen!! i agree with Carrie and Eric - the red is stunning, and the purple's spacing as Eric mentioned. i might also add some spacing between all the elements above your 'joyful' berries, if you dont mind me saying :)

Spacing on right one for me. I think I like red and green color the best, but they're both nice palettes!

what do you think about putting "joyful" in red? Have you tried that? or adding another color... I'm wanting Joyful to pop like "cheer". Love the design and I think both colorways are successful.

I did try 'joyful' in red, and it seemed a little too busy. Maybe I'll try again and post for more opinions.

Input, please! Do you prefer the classic red and green, or the more modern purple and green. Also, family names tight with the rest of the type, or dropped below. Thanks!
