Clean and Simple at Phindys Place

Hello everyone, its Friday again and that means another challenge at Phindys Place
This week the theme is Clean and Simple
This is a theme which I have to say I find very very difficult and usually avoid at all costs.
I used Bountiful Bouquet (Girl) and coloured with copics.
I used my sewing machine (before it broke) to stitch and added a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
The bottom panel is also embossed with a cuttlebug folder.





So why not come and be challenged at our CAS Challenge.
You dont need to use a Phindy Image but we love it when you do....

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Southern Girls Challenge - Get your Girly on
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes (2nd entry)
