Sticky Situation?

Good morning! We have a lovely sunshine this morning, better enjoy it as long it lasts. I'm not sure if today's card qualifies for the Less Is More challenge, so I'm keeping fingers crossed both for the weather and the card.

I followed the sketch, but I'm still unsure about the amount of white space, loved to work with the sketch though.

The fab pine branch and the sentiment are Penny Black stamps and the edge was made with a MS punch.
I used Pine Needles Distress ink for stamping and Fired Brick for distressing the Laura Ashley paper.
