Pile It On #20 - Clean and Simple

Happy Mothers Day to all the US Mommies, Grandmas, Aunties and other special ladies!
It's time for another challenge and the theme is "Clean and Simple"
Now before you all going running for the hills screaming remember that this "should", cough cough splutter splutter, make the card quicker and easier to make!
We are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $15 Gift Certificate to our wonderful winner

The Clean and Simple style is minimal if any matting, embellishing, fancy stuff, it is really the image that should be your focus.
And if this still has you running scared remember that is supposed to be a CHALLENGE after all :)

Our team did a great job and hopefully it will inspire you to join in with us

Wonderful CAS creations. I'm abit confused about the challenges that others are entering such as CAS-Friday. CAS-Friday has a rule that only allows 4 total combined challenges including the CAS-Friday challenge so that means only 3 other challenges can be entered if one enters CAs-Fridays. I noticed that some are entering the CAS-Fridays and really piling it on. Not wanting to upset anyone but just thought I'd mention this. I recently had a creation that I was able to psot to 30+ challenges but it was not a Clean and Simple Card because there are not that many challenges with CAS as their challenge theme.

Thanks for your response CG. I just wanted to make sure I did not step on anyone's toes but wanted to make sure I understood how to play the Pile It On challenge. Have a nice day.
