Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge # 15

Okay, I'm late posting this challenge - sorry!  I know it won't count, but I still wanted to post my card. 

The challenge is Makeesha Byl's Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge # 15.  This is the inspiration picture:

I found it so hard because I wanted something classic and simple, but everything I came up with seemed to be too busy!  I finally settled on using "Park Avenue Patterns", which my brother brought over for me from Canada.  I love the set - it's such a gorgeous background sampler.  This is the first time I've actually used it on a finished card! 

The ribbon is difficult to see, but it's a sheer black ribbon with satin edging.  I made the bow by creating two circles of ribbon and gathering them in the centre, then I put a Rhinestone brad in the centre.
