Our Challenge for you at The Paper Shelter this week is ‘Clean and Simple’

Definition from Splitcoast Stampers: A clean and simple card has limited layers and sometimes just a card base. It leaves a lot of "open space". It uses little or no embellishments. Any techniques should be the old standard everyday kind like sponging, distressing,  and piercing. Limit the number of tools you use. Any coloured images should be small and quick. Don’t go overboard on tons of punches. CAS cards should be easy and quick

I can feel the panic come over me as I think about no lace,ribbon or flowers and not being able to use my beloved die cuts. Clean and Simple is always a huge challenge for me so I would love to see all your wonderful creations.

Well, here goes… I’ve chosen the very sweet Candy Angel and created this CAS card:
