ARTastic Challenge... Artist Postcard.

Newbie attempt at another challenge... this time for the Artastic Challenge Blog
The inspo photo was this:

This was my take:

Another excuse to something with one of the Photos from our Betrothal Handfasting. ;O)
Liked the 'frame feel of the inspo pic so I went with an Art Nouveau free clip-art frame I found online... and a
background from the same place.
Really liked the 'circle' on the back ground, again influenced by the inspo pic.
Also tried to mimic the soft color by coloring in marker then spraying all with Glimmer Mist to soften everything out.
Finally for the 'halo of flowers' I actually used a piece from the inspo pic. (circle on the left, inside the bigger circle in the background)

Reverie - Criteria for March....
ARTastic Diva Demand... for an extra 6 bonus points
