Spring Wedding Challenge

I just submitted these two designs for the Minted Spring Green Wedding Invitation Challenge, where the challenge was to create a spring inspired wedding invitation using only bright shades of green and white. Would love it if you would consider hopping over to score/comment on my designs, as well as any of the other wonderfully talented submissions (direct links are included in the title above each image). I'll post later when Minted opens the voting (assuming either of these designs make their final cut for voting).

1. Fiddleheads

When I learned about this challenge, I immediately was inspired to illustrate fiddleheads, given that they convey spring, an unfurling of good things, and tasty food. All beautifully representative of a spring wedding!

1. Oak Tree

The second idea I had was to illustrate an oak tree, given its status as a wedding symbol of solidity, strength, and eternal love. But I wanted to create a different viewpoint of the tree, compared to a traditional orientation of the tree in entirety being centered on the invite. I really love the way the branches and leaves wrap around the text.
