Agapanthus Thank You

I have an ultra simple card today...with lots of white space. I used a stamp I bought with a challenge prize from Simon Says Stamp, called 'Agapanthus Clusters' (it's a cling stamp by Stampendous), stamped in 'Faded Jeans' Distress Ink. I coloured in the 'outline' flowers with some more of the same ink watered down a bit. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Heartfelt Messages' set by Hero Arts, and the small adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts....and that's it...really simple.
