  7. Hi Lorraine,
    I think that you may have linked up this pretty card to our challenge in error.
    Ours is SOLELY a Clean and Simple challenge where we like to see areas of white space, few layers and minimal embellishments!
    We also have a rule that only 5 challenges may be combined (including ours).
    Do join us again!
    Thanks so much
