Less is more - Week 8

I should really be getting on with my Mother's Day card, but I didn't want to miss the less is more challenge.  This week it's a sketch:

And as it's so quick to make a card for this challenge  - I managed to squeeze this one in.

I used a black piece of cardstock for the base. Added a border cut from my Silhouette and a flower which was also cut from the Silhouette and coloured with Distress inks. I added a pearl in the centre to finish.  Oh - nearly forgot, the sentiment is from HoTP, stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Detail white embossing powder.

Ok! I really must get on with Mom's card, but before I go I would just like to thank all the Less is More community and my usual lovely followers for all the comments that have been left lately. I'm really chuffed.
