String Art at 365 Cards

I'm glad I got the chance to share a card for today's challenge at 365 Cards, because I've always wanted to try this on a card.
It was definitely a learning experience for me, and I like how it turned out, but I think I could do a better job now that I have the idea.
Here's my card:

It ends up looking Clean & Simple, and yet it was quite a lot of work. I used little brads to help me with positioning. The design is an imitation of a curve-stitch design that I found here. I sort of guessed my way through it. What's nice is that by the time I was done, I felt that any additional embellishement would just detract from the string art, so I just added a sentiment and I was done.

Thanks for looking!
