Carly... from the wedding in Vermont eh? It is lovely...
I agree with Phyllis about more detail in the bottom right rose...and think you could lose the petal in the bottom left. As for overlapping the bottom right one, it can be done believe it or not. You can "fritch" out the background color, and a portion of the petal center bottom. When dry, a very thin coat of gouche (if necessary) then paint it.
Hope this helps... this painting will make a wonderful gift..and the frame sounds ideal.
PS: be careful not to disturb the fibers in the paper too much when you fritch or lift.. or it won't accept the new paint well.
