Valentine's/Wedding card

I made this card as a wedding card with a Valentine's look.  I need a card for my cousin and his wife for their wedding but since their reception is Feb. 17, I thought giving it a Valentine's slant would be both appropriate and nice.  The crowns are gold-inked which you can really see in the right light and I went back and added a bit of pearl pen to their "spikes" which you can see in the close-up.

Cardstock: (Whisper White, Real Red, Regal Rose, Crumbcake (kraft), Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Ink: (Regal Rose, Basic Brown) Stampin' Up, (Gold) Encore
Stamps: (Posh) Teresa Collins, (Happy Harmony) Stampin' Up
Misc: (Baker's Twine) Whisper Graphics, (Lace Punch) Martha Stewart, (Pearl Pen) Viva Decor

Frosted Designs: Sketch #11: I was a bit loose with the sketch but I think it's definitely still close enough to be recognizable. 
Moxie Fab: Tuesday Trigger: I definitely went with the color scheme from these and I couldn't help but use the little birds - those dots and Pearl Penned crowns match the non-pareils wonderfully! :) And man! I want a petit-four right now!!! 
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays: Anything Goes
Create: Valentine's
Simon Says Stamp: Kings & Queens
Kraft Journal: Romantic
Tip Top Tuesday: Valentine's
Sarah Hurley: #59: Love is All Around
