ABC Challenge - Z is for...

We've reached the end of the alphabet this week at the ABC Challenge...and this week's theme is:

Z - for 'Zero Embellishment'

We'd like to see you strip your cards back to the bare essentials...and leave all of your flowers, ribbons, buttons and brads in the drawer...we know you can't bear to use them anyway! ;0)

I've made a Christmas card this week...and decided to make my stamped image ('Curly Tree' by Anita's) a real focal point. I kept the background all white...using embossed textures ('Swiss Dots', Snowflakes' and 'Snow Dots' Cuttlebug folders) for interest.

To celebrate the end of the alphabet (don't worry...we will be back for more next week!)...there's a prize up for I do hope that you'll join us. For more inspiration, make sure you check out the other design team members blogs.
