Clean & Simple

Challenges

Charisma Cardz (8) - Black/White/Other
The Sugar Bowl (54) - Sketch/Clean & Simple
Allsorts (92) - Handmade Flowers
Less Is More (4) - Three Squares

Here is a style of card that I don't do very often, clean and simple. I must make a few more in this style as sometimes I do get a bit carried away adding things when it's not always necessary. I enjoyed making this one and like how it has turned out. The image has been coloured with pencils. I have punched the flowers and shaped them by cutting and folding. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Is this a white card photographed on a black background or a black card? It's a bit tricky to tell. Whatever it is I love the three squares!
