Please CC my birth announcement

Hi all,
I had a newborn in my studio the other day, and I'm working on a birth announcement for her. I've never put one together before, so I'd love your thoughts. I have the front cropped as it will be at WHCC, but the back you'll have to imagine a little less of a pink border than it appears on the picture.

So, any CC is wonderful--let me know if I should ditch any of the pictures and find something else!

I think this is really sweet! I really love the pink damask paper on the front side.

I obviously won't comment on color, but I think the pictures all look great. Not sure how it would look if you flipped the basket image, but it might provide a little bit of balance to the right side.

Photos aside, when I make invites for people I usually offer two or three different font options, just because I've found everybody likes different ones.

Love it!

The pinks are gorgeous, the print, everything. Gorgeous!

I love it! My only suggestion would be to move the word "introducing" to the far right rather than slightly to the right of center. It looks a touch unbalanced. but that is a serious nit pick. It's lovely and I'm sure the family will love it!

Best,

This is what I was thinking. Try lining the g up with the h in Faith. LOVE it!

Yeah, I've actually already moved it over and changed the font to match the same as her name. Still deciding if I want to change the font of the rest of the text at the bottom. I want something plain, but not sure the one I used is the one I want.
I actually found this template on ILP, and just changed it a bit to meet my needs. The back I came up with myself, so that's kind of what I needed CC on.
Thanks for all your input! I appreciate it!
