Damask, if I must!

I was very much intrigued by the Moxie Fab World Challenge-Diggin' on Damask. I find the heavy fabric pattern not so easy to use in my projects. However, I do have one sheet of Damask paper from American Craft that has never been used, I think the challenge is calling me again .
Thinking of You
One note about this gorgeous rosette/flower, it  was sent by my special friend Tiffany! Thank you, my sweet friend! I never think I know how to use these flowers, but it looks perfectly fitting in this card!
I know this will not be my last time diggin' Damask.
~~~added note: this card was also featured in CARDS Challenge Blog (Ruffles)~~~
I also have a little exciting news to share...that I will be guest designing for ..Wee Memories..for the month of November. So it starts this Saturday along with my Etsy Inspired Challenge! Hope you stop by!
