I don't think it's too busy, and I LOVE the first two lines! The only part that maybe throws me off is the ER in Shower, at quick glance (like scrolling through a lot of thumbnails) it reads as Baby Show and not Baby Shower.

The typograhy is really nice. I do agree with Katherine about the 'ER'. And I really think that if you add a white border and closed everything in a bit more it would balance out. *a little typo - REGISTERED

love the vibe! i agree with the other comments -- and I might make it a tiny bit small / move the copy in from the frame just a tad for a little breathing room. It's really cool!

Thank you ladies! I was a little worried about the ER in Shower, so I might change that. I will play around with a border as well. Thanks for all the suggestions. It's really helpful!
