Less is More sketch

This week's challenge is a sketch at Less is More.

For my card I used the Simon Says Stamp Happy birthday circle die and the It's your birthday stampset.

Wow opaque bright white embossing powder.
At first I added some color with enamel dots, but then realized the sketch had a sentiment banner...I thought the circles said it all ;-) so I added the banner and felt it was now quite full, so peeled them off again, left the black heart and moved the yellow dot to the heart, just for a pop of color.

I'm also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Challenges: party. Merry Christmas everyone, I'm off to work, so wish me luck ;-)
