Lime and black at LIM

Hi! just a quick post from me to share a card I made for this weeks Less is More challenge. I used the negative part of the black card after punching the flower and die cutting the 'stem' and oval aperture for the sentiment. I backed the flower part with a piece of paper which I 'zentangled' some time ago. (So therapeutic! I probably haven't done it properly, I just doodled, but I enjoyed it!!).
Rather blurred close up of the zentangled background!
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of lime green card, then stuck the black piece on top. Added a piece of ribbon and a button and that's it!
Thanks for taking the time to look.
