Plain & Simple

Morning all I have been itching to play with my new Stampin'up goodies and I found a few challenges today that suit this style, I know its a lot different to what I normally create but they say a change is as good as a rest .
All the ink, stamps and punch used here is from SU the die cuts are from my shop Die cut Dreams and I also used a cuttlebug folder.
I entered this one into these challenges;
Flutter By Wednesday challenge Open
Stamping sisters in Christ challenge plain & simple
Quixotic Challenge monochromatic
Crafty Catz ChallengeWhite and one other colour
Raise the bar Challenge APRIL FOOL! a style that you normally don't do for me its this plain and simple style
Fun with shapes Challenge Faux stitching (if you look closely at the white embossed die cut you will see there is small faux stitches round the edge they are small but they are there !! he he )
Have a great afternoon I'm off out to lunch with Garry then shopping in Southampton, so catch you later thanks for visiting
