Given that budget I'd get the Roxy XOXO PTX for sure. Gnu Ladies Choice would be a close 2nd. NS Infinity and Arbor Swoon are worth a look too.

However I agree with what you're saying about board graphics. Much prefer the topsheet on ones like the Roxy Banana Smoothie, Gnu Ladies Pickle, and Arbor Swoon/Poparazzi. Stuff like the XOXO and Velvet Guru are so damn ugly.
