PURE and SIMPLE!

Last time I set a challenge for you back at the beginning of December I asked you to use texture, lots of ribbon, lace etc..... The lovely Ruth left a comment that got me thinking!

"Thanks for the challenge, Adele - I'm usually a bit scared of adding too much to my cards so this will be a good opportunity to stretch myself a little!Ruth xx"

For me I have gone to the other extreme almost, I see a blank bit of card and I feel I have to cover it, glitter it, stick a flower on it....whatever...but I need to add that detail. Right, no more waffle and on with the challenge.

This week I want your creations to be PURE & SIMPLE! No patterned papers, just clean, fresh and simple. I don't want any fuss on our creations this week. You can include any Charmed download, the choice is yours!
I set this challenge to the team weeks ago but when it came down to actually creating, I thought, my goodness, what have I done!
Let's see what the team have come up with!

Cannot wait to see what you all come up with so make sure you pop back and leave a link!

Did my first challenge for last week, and looks like I am the first to post for this week. Love the challenge - I prefer clean and simple, as I lack the courage and the creative idea most times to embellish my cards.

Here is my entry.

I have completed my entry for the challenge which is now on my blog. It isn't a card because I was short on time so I hope it still fits. I like the entries I have seen so far.
