I am Pattern Paper-Inspired!

Hello! Have you ever been inspired by patterned paper? Well, I have! Today's card is the proof! I was inspired by the rich and gorgeous Fresh Cut (from Basic Grey) and decided that I will make a card with it!
thank you
I gold-embossed Linked (from CAS-ual Fridays' Fri-Die) and Remember (Hero Arts). The gold- embossed flower was colored in copics. What do you think? Easy, right?

Here are the highlights of our birthday celebrations
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The birthday celebration pictures are so nice - the food does make a person hungry :). That DP is very pretty. All the gold embossing highlights it well. I really like the watercolor look of the flowers on the paper. The sentiment really stands out - great font. Another beauty, Virginia :)

Another absolute beauty Virginia! I've just got back from a 3 week stay at our beach house where I have NO card making supplies so I came home and immediately started looking for inspiration! Thank you for inspiring me today! Hugs, B xx
