Less is More week 63-One Layer

Howdy doodle everyone, are you all enjoying the free expression challenge over at Less is More? I love all the zentangles but lack the patience for it and I've been thinking about it for days now and over complicating the remit, when a few dots could possibly suffice:) Doodling is something I've always done in meetings and even during our weekly quiz night and it is always a variation on a theme. So here is my  regular doodle although I don't normally colour it!

I used a fine tip on a Slate PM and doodled the leaf shapes and the twirls and coloured with Victorian Velvet, Bundled Sage and a water brush. I added some green pearls and the sentiment is from my xyron digital printer. It looked a bit bare so I drew a wobbly line around the edge of the card to tie it all in.
Hope you like it, please leave a comment so I can visit you:)
