Just One Word (for the 2nd time!)

This morning, instead of doing the sorting and tidying which I intended, I have been making a set of cards as a gift for a friend's birthday and I realised one of them fitted the Less is More challenge - Just One Word. It is using the same retired sentiment that I used for my first entry (see last post) but this time with a stamp from Hopeful Thoughts.
My friend has a similar taste as me, in that she loves black, white and neutral colours, so all the cards in the set are made in these shades. This particular one is stamped in Basic Black onto a plain white card blank with just the addition of a few Basic Rhinestones in the centre of the flowers and a tiny knot of Basic Black narrow taffeta ribbon. A very quick & easy card but, nevertheless, quite effective I think.
