Super cute. I might tried adding some brown or use a earthy color palette for a woodland feel.

very good suggestion...I felt uneasy about the reds and pinks looking too "little kiddish", and I think the brown helps. Also changed the font to brown to make it a lil more readable.

when u say.. flora and fauna.. i imagine there will be some cute birds along... But i didn't see any. So, maybe adding some cute pair of birds? It also symbolizes the wedding couple...

Ha. So I guess I never knew what flora and fauna meant completely...don't i feel a little dumb :) My dear friend owns a flower shop named flora and fauna, which I thought was a cute idea. I changed it to "hem ljuva hem" which means home sweet home in swedish because the pattern reminds me of old quilts I saw in Sweden. I challenged myself to stay away from any animal illustrations on this challenge bc i tend to always have little animals in 90% of my designs.

Such a cute design. It does remind me of quilt work.

this is so pretty--you definitely get swiss folk art, but it also looks modern. i feel like the caslon might not be the best fit--a sans serif like futura might fit better(?). love the colorway, love the design, love the overall feel.

Cute illustration - I like how it's a little imperfect. Nice job on that!
