Sweet Pea Stampers January Challenge - Clean and Simple but NO embellishments

Today sees the first challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog for 2013.  We had a wonderful selection of entries for the December challenge. Make sure you pop on over to the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog next Friday to see details of the winners.  This month the topic is "clean and simple but NO embellishments".
I have to admit I went "yikes" when I saw this topic but I soon had an idea of using glitter paper for some texture and different embossing folders for texture.  The image I have used is   "Aloha" and is a Sweet Pea Stamps by Ching Chou-Kuik.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers kepping to tones of blue and added clouds with Pan Pastels.  I have used two different embossing folders and highlighted the embossing with two different Pan Pastels.  The card is finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
