Clean & Simple Challenge Card

I've made this card for my sister's birthday. She likes clean, stylish but simple lines. Apologies for the shadow in the photo. You can click to enlarge it, to get a better idea if you like.

It was very easy, but I like how it turned out - quite elegant, I think.

It's white Swiss Dots paper layered onto a black edge. The Martha Stewar doily punch softens the lines. The flower is from Dover.

I rubbed a spoon on the back of the flower to curl it a bit, for more of a dimensional effect. I added a single pink rhinestone in the middle, and kept the ribbon simple too.

I'm entering this into the Totally Papercrafts Challenge 31 - Let's Keep It Clean & Simple.
If you want to enter the challenge, it closes on Friday, September 3rd.
