This is beautiful. I love all the spirals. Could the berry stems perhaps be slightly curving to compliment this. Just a thought :)

This plum color is terrific. Would also look great with a black and white photo.

Stunning joy illustration, Amy! Love the plum color too - very rich, yet fresh.

so lovely, Amy! if you dont mind my input - perhaps center the line between the 2 text lines? (or even without the line to not fight with your lovely line illustration) ;)

I know this is quite a departure from the original layout but I think this will work with so many more photos.

I agree that it's a tricky layout...but it's gorgeous! Could you use a landscape photo, move the graphic and type closer together, and overlay them on the left or right side of the photo?

I actually LOVE the separated one, and it's definitely more versatile. Love that burgundy with the red berries, too.

You might consider submitting the other one separately - they're certainly different enough from each other. Personally I like this one the way it is and would hate for it to be changed much. Maybe you could make the "Joy" design element slightly smaller so that more photos would work?

They're both lovely! I vote for the separated layout. The red berries really pop against the dark field.
