Colours Stories Inspiration - Case File 3

CSI is in it's third week already and so far so good - I have kept up with the challenges. I was a bit stumped with the third case file, the colours and some of the elements had me pulling my hair out. Slowly but surely I played around with the layout, I was tempted about four times to bin it...but I kept going and grabbed the mist bottle.
Here is the case file that we had to work with, it is lovely but very difficult for me. After some time this is the layout that I finished with. The photo of it is a bit off and doesn't show it's true colours - believe me (it took me ages to find them) but I have used the proper colour scheme. All that misting is actually a light brown, similar to the colour element, but for the life of me every photo I too it almost looks black. These close-ups show off some of the detail and they also show off the colours better. I have done the main title gold - which I hardly ever use, you can also see the sheer ribbon, with gold trim. I have done the journaling on the tags, which are hidden behind the photo. The journaling reads; For a Dream Wedding just add 1 Princess, 1 Prince, 1 pair of fairy wings, lots of laughs, lots of fun and a life time of love. I just had to add a fairy to the layout and above the fairy you can see the doily.
