Just a clean and simple one

I just wanted to put together an understated card, nothing too challenging on the old creative brain. I've been looking at and admiring bloggers with clean and simple designer paper craft projects. For me, creatively at least, messy is easy. I've been doing it long enough to feel at ease with expressing something artisitically with inks, paints, stamps and recycled junk. I can collage myself out of a paper bag in an art emergency :D

But I'm realising that a clean, elegant style is more difficult than it looks. I've normally thought pah, a child could do that but I'm wrong. And you don't hear me say that everyday :D So the next time I'm sat at my desk with my patterned papers and stamps, I'm going to give it a try and see how well I do at making a neat and tidy project. Bring it on haha!
