Birthday Card - 'Clean and Simple'

Whilst at the Crafting at 'Ally Pally' show in London last month, I watched
a couple of demonstrations using these media plates, which really impressed me.
Back home, I then found some YouTube videos to watch, by John Lockwood and
other crafters and then had a go myself. 

After a few attempts, here is a birthday card I made for a 'card-making' friend.

The set contains a square, rectangle, oval and circle and are really easy to use,
and create a lovely effect. I'm going to try using stencils on the plate next.
The products I have used are:-
John Next Door Media Plates
Stamps purchased from eBay
Challenges entered:-
Watercooler Wednesday - Feminine Anything Goes
Papercraft Challenges - Clean and Simple
Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - For Ladies or Girls only
Freshly Made Sketches - #335
Thank you for visiting today.
