Less is More

After practising with the violet card to get the 'frothy fluffy adorn to death' creation out of my mind, (which I still haven't posted but promise I will later),  I remembered the new challenge blog which has just started - called Less is More and this is my first card for their first challenge.
Colours had to be pink, black and white.
I sponged the top of the thistle head with 'Spun Sugar' distress ink, matted and layered onto pink, then black card, a bit of ribbon and a sentiment stamp.... oh and couldn't resist the three tiny sparklies....LOL
Am also entering this into the Clean and Simple challenge at StampARTic.
