Penny Black Saturday #151 ~ Clean & Simple...

Morning!! A fabulous challenge today at Penny Black Saturday.....
fast becoming a favourite style of mine and many others too ~
'Clean & Simple'.....

I love white on white and embossing! and when I found these gorgeous embossed circles from Craftwork Cards....I had to have them!!
I had my layout in mind so I found a tiny Penny Black hedgie that would fit into the same size circle and then added a pink mat just to make the images pop!
The images are coloured with promarkers and I finished by adding all the pink gems :)

This week's prize is a fabulous $20 voucher to spend at 1-2-3-Stitch for one lucky winner :)

Do check out all the DT cards {HERE}.....there are some stunning cards and great inspiration.

Looking forward to seeing all your 'Clean and Simple' creations x
