Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Clean & Simple

After last week's 'Distressing' themed challenge, it's time for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge to get:

'Clean & Simple'

Our sponsor this week is 1-2-3 Stitch!, and the prize is a $20 voucher to spend in their store!

(I've just been to have a look...and they have lots of lovely goodies in there...including Penny Black stamps...of I don't think the lucky winner will have trouble spending their prize!)

So, here's my project:

Well, actually that's just the box I made to put them in...made very quickly using my scoring board, and then decorated with some 'Swiss Dots' embossed card, and gold satin ribbon. 

This is what's inside (click the photo for a larger view):

It's a set of simple, single layer cards for various occasions, with decorated envelopes, to give as a gift. I've used a mixture of wood mounted and stamps from several 'T for Transparent' sets. Here are some close-ups (I've listed the products used underneath each photo) :
