The Paper Shelter Challenge #458 Clean and Simple (CAS)

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is CAS or Clean and Simple. I have a really hard time doing this type of card as I always want to add more to it. I don't like lots of white space on my cards, so mine is not really CAS but just less layered and less embellished than usual.

I used the adorable Unusual Friends for my card and used a stencil to create the background paper. As I wanted the different elements of the stencil in different colours, I covered up the parts in washi tape before stencilling one image then moved the tape to do the next and so on. It took a while to do but I love the effect of it. Will have to try this again with some of my other stencils.
