Very cute Dena! Super nitpicky but maybe the margins on top and bottom of the card can be equal? Other than that I think it's perfect!

Really love this design, Dena! Line weights and textures really add interest. Great color palette, too!

My first critique... hope its helpful! :) I also really LOVE this design. I have a couple friendly suggestions for you to try: (1) The wreath seems a little busy/heavy to me. On a save-the-date, you want people to focus on the date itself. I think the wreath is overpowering the date. Have you tried removing the branches/berries from the inside of the wreath? Or maybe just using half as many branches/berries overall? (2) The typography inside the wreath feels a little crowded. Have you tried moving "save the date" above the birds and leaving the numbers by themselves inside the wreath? - Happy tweaking!

this is SO pretty! my only suggestion would be to scale down the date inside the wreath a tad to give it more breathing room :) lovely job!
