Less is More - week 52 - sketch

So the challenge this week at Less is More is different from their usual style - we have a sketch to follow.
A bit out of my comfort zone because I usually make square cards, however IF I do make a rectangular one, I prefer landscape. I don't like the look of the A6 portrait style, but that's just me!
I've made a 'get well soon' card, mainly for my daughter because she has to go into hospital in 3 weeks time for a fairly major operation and I'm going to look after her when she comes out, so I know I won't have any time for cardmaking for quite some time. She loves the black and white theme (her recent wedding was all based on black and white/ivory colours - see my recent post!) so this is just for her.
The base is a white linen effect card with a black and white spotty ribbon for the band. Then I added 3 black/white flowers (found in Poundland last week) which came with bling already in the centres! The sentiment was done in Publisher and printed directly on to the card.
Hope I get time to make another this week - I'm liking this idea. Thank you lady divas!
