Less and Simple...

This post is for Two Challenges... so I combined the names...and not very well....
(rolls eyes)
I tried though
(little grin)

Less is More  - Sketch 
and here it is.

Clear it out Challenge  - Clean and Simple

Now you know were the blog post title came from.
ok so I will try harder next time to come up with a better name.

Here is my card.. 

It is a 15cm square card,
with a strip of red card through the center
(I would love to tell you the name of the red card, but am afraid it is just called Red)
Then I added three handmade flowers using foam pads.
The flowers are made using a die in my machine
They also have a red peel off gem in the middle.
I then stamped Happy Birthday using my new ink, 
yes new ink... NEW INK
its called Versafine - Onyx black
And it is lovely to use

I hope it fits the criteria of both Challenges.

Those of you that pop over regular..
I have also finished Mum's Birthday card
SO If i get chance later I will pop some pics on
I am rather happy with the result, 
apart from one thing (rolls eyes)
It looks  like an Anniversary card !!!

Thanks for stopping by xx
