Clean and Simple

I made this card for this week's "Use a Digi" challenge at One Stitch At A Time...
 
 
 
I coloured in the image (a pretty Stitchy Stamps digi stamp called Lady Bug) and trimmed it and laid it against a blank white card.... and then I played around with all sorts of pretty patterned papers and stuff but I just kept coming back to how nice it looked just against the plain white background.
 
So I decided to go Clean and Simple with this card and just added a flourish and a small sentiment stamped directly onto the card base with the image layered over it on foam pads. I think it really shows off the image.

This week's OSAAT challenge is sponsored by Joanna Sheen and you can be in with a chance to win a prize from Joanna if you enter the challenge using a Stitchy Bear image. Or if you enter without using a Stitchy Bear image, you will be in with a chance of winning a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear store. :)

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Flowers
Allsorts - Autumn Colours
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Speedy and Friends - Leaves
Fussy and Fancy - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations - Autumn Colours
Polkadoodles - Autumn
