i LOVE this!!! for me the stand reference is the nod to delicate Spanish lace! between the names and the lacy "BABY" design---it's perfect! :)

This is absolutely stunning! What a beautiful piece of typographic design. It really is speaking to me. The paper cut- out look is so sharp. I think you should use this style again and again. I want personal stationary like this. Just splendid!

Thanks, everyone! @Kim: Haha, I was wondering if anyone would notice the nod to LOST. But, seriously, do you think it's distracting? :)

I don't know the answer, Susie - it's fun, but I don't know how people interpret that while looking at their potential birth announcement? It cracked me up when I read it, especially given the beautiful nature of the announcement! Good luck with your decision - you could always change it right before the voting starts...

Love your type treatment - i think you can do without the line at the bottom. it seems a little croweded up to the parent's names - i'd say move it down - but i think you can remove it all together.
