C I think the photo lends itself to charcoal gray.

I picked B, but I might suggest adding a slight stroke on the “baby boy” so it shows up well when printing =)

i like B because the details are in a different color, but i wonder what it would look like with either the pale blue or foil for "baby boy?!?!" :)

I love A. I like how the name sits so nicely below and just to the left. I think you could even scale back the headline just a wee bit if you wanted. I'd like to see the stats text line below the photo but maybe you tried that and it looks better up there. Not a deal breaker but I think I'd like the headline and introducing name by itself up top. Super cute!

I said A - I like the name to the left of "boy" (the space there feels a little empty in the other version)

HI Ella, Both are fun. Going with B, feels balanced. :)

B. I prefer the spacing (breathing room), not sure about the text above Baby Boy, though.

I love how both the photo and text pop equally in B! The text is definitely dominant in A.

I chose A, but I would make everything a little smaller and move the bottom line up a bit to give more breathing room :)

B for me - in A, the name feels a bit like an afterthought. But can you make "baby boy" a tiny bit smaller? It feels a little cramped in the space. Also, I want to move "introducing our" up a bit too for the same reason. Love it!

I love the layout with the display font in A! I think I'd make 'baby boy' a little smaller so the baby name isn't overshadowed... and maybe pull everything up a few ticks to give the photo a little more space to breathe :)
