comments from Jordan:

This neutral photo birth announcement is as precious as your new twin babies are. The soft watercolours are a pretty neutral for any combination of gender.

thanks so much for the feedback Stacey! I had two versions for the background, I think you're right - looks more fresh with white! : )

I LOVE your background illustration! The type feels a bit tight in the white space. Have you thought about closing up some of the space between the name, date and info so that the type doesn't run over your confetti?

I adore the watercolor dots! I might suggest cropping the photo more horizontally and extending it to the edges. And on what Ann said, I think if the name/date/weight info was brought up closer to the 12th may 2013 line and put in a light san serif type (like futura) I think it will marry the type better with the lovely light, modern feel of this : )

This is just stunning, has amazing potential. Maybe you could add a heart icon in the gray between the baby names and weight or a "J" for their last name. It's just kind of standing out to me right now empty as it is. I think this would be amazing a fresh white background too with not photo border. Just my 2 cents. Also, center the names vertically between the 2 lines.
