Should I make the text more simple? With no curve?

I like it as is, but maybe put up a poll without the curve so we can see what it would look like?

I wouldn't change a thing! I like the curve in the text and the back ground.

I love the curved text. I think it gives your modern design a subtle touch of whimsy. Great job.

This is so cute! Reminds me of a Kate Spade pattern.

Super cute pattern. I wonder if simplifying the text by just using the script for the "adventure" and "due" and then using the san serif for the rest. Love the script font!

I'd suggest pairing a different photo. This reads wedding to me more than pregnancy announcement. Your design would pair well with a more simplistic photograph.

I like the photo. I like the unique pattern. The contrast looks nice. sometimes it's interesting to take photos and some in your frame to see how it works. Can other photos fit into it, for example? This is what I tried. Maybe it would be interesting to see. I like the photo but don't understand the wreath, if you are showing a baby bump.
