Double D challenge - Pick a Pattern

This time it is Team Darlene and the challenge is to pick a pattern and make a card. I needed a masculine card so I went with a masculine pattern.  You can do anything that you like with a pattern.

I have a friend whose husband is in rehab after surgery to remove a brain tumor. 
 His rehab is slow, but he is doing well.  I thought he needed a card. 

Here is the card that I made for him. 



This one was made in record time as I used dies and there was no coloring.  After I picked out my pattern papers. I used a stitched heart die from Die Namice to cut a bunch of hearts. I used GKD kraft card stock for the base and placed them where I liked. I cut one and 1/4 inch off of the front so that the back would show. I also trimmed the heart on the top right of this card.  I had a little leftover design paper and used it on the envelope. 

The inside

This is the prize that you can win.

Your paper choices are just wonderful and I love your color palette. And the gold is such a great touch with the rustic feel of the rest of the card. This is simply FABULOUS!!!
