I designed a new version to align more with the contest guidelines of having a cultural theme. Comments welcome!

Like this, but am unsure about the dotted border along the bottom. I don't think you need it.

at the bottom, is that supposed to be a skull?

To Kate - thanks for your comment. Yes! The illustration in the bottom left had corner is a skull (a sugar skull to be exact). The invitation is designed with a Mexican couple in mind, who want a popular Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) theme to their wedding. Skulls and skeletons, floral designs and the color palette used here are the main symbols of this holiday every November. Thanks!!

gotcha on the dia de los muertos. it might be good to change the name of the design from "te amo" to "dia de los muertos" instead? just so people are sure?
