Less is More Week 71 - One Layer 'Flourish'

I am posting my Less is More challenge entry early this week as I've got a busy week ahead - more of that later.  This week it's 'One Layer Week' and the challenge is to include a flourish on your card.
I bought a lovely set of Justrite stamps at the last Hobbycrafts show in March together with the co-ordinating Nestabilities die set but haven't used either of them yet.  I think the stamped image is quite 'flourishy' but I also embossed the bottom of my tentfold Kraft card with a' flourishy'  embossing folder as well.  I took inspiration from Mandi's aperture card but opted for neutral tones. What do you think? (I'm not convinced lol!)

  Card: Kraft cardstock
Stamps: Justrite Kindness Cling stamp set, Craftwork Cards Sentiments stamp
Dies: Spellbindes Labels 20
Embossing Folder:Tim Holtz Texture Fades 'Regal Flourishes'
Other: Ivory satin 15mm ribbon
