MMM week 38

Hi everyone, sorry if I've missed commenting on your blogs this week but we were in Portsmouth for a long weekend and things have been very busy here. No baby yet............!
Anyway it's the last week of ROMANCE over at Make My Monday and they have asked us to use FLOURISHES and DIAMONDS. I was going to combine it with the Less is More challenge but my card is not CAS enough but all the components are leftovers from other cards!
Here it is:


The base card is black ribbed card stock and the strip on the left is a piece stamped with a flower in black Memento and leftover from another card. The flourishes are cut on my Silhouette and highlighted with clear gems. The sentiment is computer generated, fussy cut and popped up on foam dots. Gems are also applied to the centre of the flower.

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate any comments you make so that I can visit you:)
