I definitely like this better - it feels bolder and cleaner. I think you could put a little more space between 'the' and 'Peterson' - the swash on the e gets a little close. :)

I think that helps give the picture more prominence and space :) I think you could tilt the greetings just a teeny more - 20 degrees or so, so it's slightly more parallel to the 2014, but just my thoughts :)

The changes you made to this design definitely made a big impact. I love the current placement of "Greetings."

Chris - love the colors and feel of this! I think 'Greetings' feels a little heavy -- maybe you could make it a little smaller or move it up above the tips of 2014, then bring down 'Greetings and 2014' a smidge just to give the photo a little more prominence? just a thought - but I really love the feel of the fonts and colors and layout together :)

I think if you could move greetings up and to the left a little, above the '201' and then shrink it with 2014 down a tad -- just a thought :) Hope that makes sense. :)

I love this Chris! I just wonder whether red might be a bit to Christmassy? I would love to see what it looks like in gold or chartreuse.
