CAS on the Catwalk

Hello folks, hope you're having a good weekend so far. I'm having a lazy weekend, getting my strength up for another manic week at work unless the lottery fairy smiles on me lol. Anyway we've got a new challenge starting on the catwalk at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time our theme is totally out of my comfort zone, yep its 'Clean and Simple'. As always we've got lots of inspiration from my very talented teamies and a fab prize from Flonzcraft our generous sponsor.

I've used a background stamp from Indigo Blu, inked up with Ladybug Memento Ink and this gorgeous car stamp from Flonzcraft. The sentiment is also from Indigo Blu. It only took about 5 minutes to make and I'm not at all sure I like it but hopefully it fits the bill for our theme this week. I've got to say it was a nice change to make such a quick card although it was a challenge to keep it clean as I've always got such inky fingers lol.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Making Mamas: black,white plus one
Eureka Stamps: clean and simple
My Craft Spot:clean and simple
Oldie but goodie: for a man/boy
(my oldie is the car stamp)
Stempelsonnen: anything goes
The Male Room: anything goes

Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments,
