Sentiment Focus for the "LIMettes"

Over at the Less is More Challenge this week the theme is 
"A One Layer Card with the SENTIMENT as the focus of your creation"
Only one card for this weeks theme from me as I'm busy sorting out and getting ready for my packing boxes to arrive on Thursday but don't be fooled I still sadly haven't got a moving date ...which is driving me nuts !! lol.
I used a Stempelglade stamp from the Just a note set.
A couple of strokes of colour box Q chalk ink to give a soft focus colour in the background.
Then I drew round a nestie circle die but left a little gap to stamp the WoJ flourish and add the finishing touch I added 3 tiny pink Queen & co gems
Have a great evening
Hugs.............

I think the idea of drawing a circle and leaving a gap for your flourish is a great idea Susie.
Also the sentiment might have been better either at a greater slant or completely straight!
Good luck with the move, I don't envy you, it's such hard work, but it will be great once you're in.
