C4C208: Sketch/color/wedding challenge

This weeks Crazy4Challenges Blog Challenge was a big challenge for me!

The challenge is to make a Wedding Card using the sketch provided and the colors green mint, peach, and gold.  Those colors might work for a wedding but I struggled to use them on a card.  The first two attempts ended up in the trash.  

This is what I finally came up with that I didn't hate.


Here is the sketch and color pallette:



Here's another look at my card.  
I went with a 5 1/4" square card base but other than that change I stuck pretty close to the sketch.


 The flower is Classic Rose by Stampendous from Michael's.
I colored it with Copic Markers.
I embossed the sentiment with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.
