Golden Anniversary card and bag

Hi all
Here is a card and gift bag set I have been asked to make for a couple who are celebrating their Golden wedding anniversary. Clean and simple in gold and white was the brief ...I am not great at clean and simple as I tend to over embellish .
I used a darice 8x8 embossing folder for the background. The  heart die is from sizzix . The ribbons and pearls are from Meiflower crafts. I embossed the SU sentiment with gold metallic wow powder.
The pins are handmade and HERE is my very basic tutorial on how to make them for yourselves
The  blank white gift bag is from papermania .
