Wedding card (non-traditional)

I like to sometimes make an unusual card for an event. Such as this wedding card in unexpected colors. The sentiment is perfect though and therefor the trees (one of my favorite images):
This card is also for the CPS anniversary Day 4 ( I turned the sketch on its side and omitted and bling. Instead of the additional "circle" element, I replaced it with the knotted bronze thread.

This card is also for:
