Clean and Simple

I saw a sketch from Clean and Simple challenge on Beths blog and decided to give it a go. I thought is might be a quick card till I decided to use the Hero Arts flowers I brought at Christmas from Simon Says Stamps.
First I stamps them on some Kaiser papers, cut them out and edge all the edges with a brown pen to hide my grotty cutting.
I also embossed them  and suddenly the time was flying by so not a quick card then.

When I laid them out they were a bit too big so I had to sacrifce one to make them fit including have one off the page. The sentiment is a Hero Arts clear design that I've had for ages. Now I'm not sure if I like it, probably cos there no ribbon!

  23. I think it looks great...I am not good at the clean and simple thing either (it always feels too plain and that it is missing something - in my case, patterned paper)...but it looks great in the picture, so I think you did a fab job!
