Pile It On #20 - Clean and Simple

It's time for another challenge over at Pile It On and I can tell you it was a real challenge for me.
The theme this week is "Clean and Simple" and I can tell you, I'm no where near a Clean and Simple style card maker.
But they don't call it a challenge for nothing so I just had to go with it!
And because Pile It On is all about combining challenges I had to make my card with a Mothers Day theme as there are lots of those around and with a Clean and Simple style being one of "less is more" there weren't really any embellishment challenges that I could use.
