My personal fav is a combo between 3 & 2.... I think. I would like to see the bottom "grapical" footer in #2 have some organic flowery ornament like on the sides of old mirrors, and let it be an integrated part of the framework, in contrast as it is now - a patch thats overlapping it.

I've also uploaded the file I used - a sef-contained (I hope) inkscape file, that should make it easy for you to play around with the stuff above:
