Good morning everyone

We are going Clean and Simple at Moving Along With The Times, which means

a card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments.

Now this is a theme I often have trouble with - I really want to go all out and embellish like mad, and this card was my third attempt at getting something I was happy with - I had tried several colour combinations before I decided to go with this one, and this is the one for me that really seemed to 'pop'.  I love the colour combination and the blocks of colour, and it does make it easier to stamp something over it.  So in the end a fairly simple card.

The block stamp is a very old Hero Arts one, the image is from Ippity stamps,  the sentiment is Stampin' Up, and the card is  from Craftwork Cards.

This week at MAWTT we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store, and there is a £10 Gift Voucher waiting for the winner of the challenge this week. 

I am entering this for the following challenges:
