Heartfelt thanks

I'm back on a clean and simple streak today, but it seemed appropriate for the theme, so I don't feel like I'm twitching from the overwhelming need to sprinkle it with embellishments!

The image was quite large, and I kept lots of white space around it to ensure it remained the focus.  The sentiment is a die cut from white card which I coloured to match the green I'd used in the image.

In keeping with the C&S style, I used simple candy striped papers which were the same colour as the flowers.

For a smidgeon of embellishment I stitched around the image panel to create a bit of interest.

And, erm, that's it.
