Beary Box sketch

My friend Erum designs for Beary Box Blog and whilst visiting I saw this great sketch on her blog, so I loved the minimalist look of it and just had to have a go. I really like the less is more thing just now!!!!

I kept it quite simple with some navy and dash of red flourishes, added Bazzill "Just the Edge" strips, die cut my rectangles using Nesties, added some gems  and a flower and finally my Merci sentiment.

Wowwee missus utter gorgeousness there!! I love flourishes and believe it or not I used to make simple cards too (don't know what happened lateley... can't seem to stop adding IYKWIM...lol)
I think simple always looks so elegant and your card is definately that :D
