ALLSORTS ~ Plain & Simple

Hello, It's time for another challenge over at
Thank you to those of you who took part in my challenge to use or more punches last week,
I loved visiting your blogs to see your fantastic creations!
The winner of the £10 voucher & My top 5 faves can be found over at the challenge blog,
sorry if I didn't pick you this time, it's always such a difficult task!
This week it's Emma who has set the challenge and she would love to see
"Plain & Simple"
Well I think most of you know this would be a difficult one for me,
I so much love looking at simple cards, and envy those who can pull it off,
I did have to tell myself to stop and I must admit I do like my finished card & at least it would be suitable for a male card.
I have used
SU ~
Woodware ~ Salutations
Brads from Stash
Tim Holtz ~ Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Would also like to enter this for:

Hi Fleur, You have really got the balance of plain and simple with this card but it's still very much a Fleur card, if you know what I mean! You have also done the near impossible (for me anyway) and made a great Mens card,
