What do you think of the over-all design with multiple photos and watercolour elements? Should I just go for a non-photo card? Thank you!

The watercolor is quite cute, I do think the multiple photos make the overall design too busy. I'd do one photo and add the birth information above the parents name.

I agree with Christy. I love the illustration but so that it does not overwhelm the photos I would reduce it in size a little and just use one photo or alternatively make it a non-photo announcement (there don't seem to be many of those submitted yet).
