Before telling you about our new challenge at Inkspirational, let me wish all my fellow countrywomen and -men Happy Independence Day! Finland has been independent since 1917 when we separated from Russia. I'm not at all a patriotic person in a conservative, politically narrow-minded sense that I feel too many are these days but I do enjoy of our welfare state where we don't have to suffer from war or extreme poverty. Congratulations Finland!

My card today has a fun connection to our Independence Day: my good friend met a guy in last year's Independence Day party where they both where working... And now they got married some weeks ago in a small wedding, just for the family. Talk about moving fast! :) I sent this card to congratulate the newly weds. The crane and sentiment stamps come from Altenew's Origami set. I paper pieced the crane using the same Japanese-style paper I used as borders in my card. The crane is heat embossed in white, sparkly powder... And the sentiment is heat embossed with gold powder. That brings me back to our challenge: use gold in your card! My gold is in the paper and in the sentiment. The Inkspirational DT has made beautiful projects so don't miss them... Our guest designer this time is the very talented Deborah from Deborah's Gems. Welcome to Inkspirational, Deborah! That's all from me this time. Have a good weekend everyone!
