a shower invite

Ok so I made some changes to the baby shower invitation.. it just didn't look quite right to me and so I tweaked it a little. I decided to do the invites in pretty in pink instead of regal rose...just seemed more appropriate to me. I also thought the black 'your invited' seemed to harsh and so I chose Old Olive instead. I did away with the brads (even though they are super cute) and opted for piercing holes in each scallop of the rectangle. I think everything else is pretty much the same. If you want all the card details they are at the bottom below the old pic...what do you think?....are the changes better? :)
Here are a couple things I was able to make last night...things got a little to crazy to post them though..sorry 'bout that. The first one is a baby shower invitation. Do you like it? I used my 'just arrived in the mail about 30 seconds earlier' Paper Tray stamp set!! It's my first Papertrey Ink set...I love how many things you can do with it...lots and lots of sentiments! The invite is actually just a postcard type...with all the info on the back.
what's in it?...
stamps...Event Full, Paper Tray, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
paper...regal rose, whisper white, certainly celery, barely banana, pretty in pink
ink...regal rose, certainly celery, black, old olive
accessories...white button brads, rose "fat" 5/8 ribbon
other...blender pens, marvy giga rectangle scallop punch, paper piercer & mat pack
