Clean and Simple Challenge

Hello Everyone,
It is time for the monthly Clean and Simple Challenge at the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog. This month the theme is:


This challenge is due by March 26th and qualifies for the monthly prize drawing as do all challenges! The prize this month is a $25 gift certificate to the store of YOUR choice! How cool is that?!!

I used a Penny Black stamp for my Design Team card. Take a look.

The color scheme is black and white. I added a bit of texture with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I stamped the image on white CS and ran it through the Cuttlebug. I added on layer of black CS and made the card base from whits CS. Nice and easy. This is another card for my Operation Write Home box. Here is another look.

A Few fun challenges for Keep it Simple with Flowers:

Victorine Originals: Embossing

Sweet stamps Blog: Flowers
