Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group Monthly Challenge - September 2015 - Clean and Simple (CAS)

Today sees the start of another challenge over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group and time for you to see creations from the Facebook Design Team.
The challenge for September 2015 is "clean and simple (CAS)".  Yikes most of you say.  I did too but I have played along as well.
For my Halloween cards I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Exotic Night".  I have used the normal Halloween colours but decided to go for more muted tones.  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers, used Tim Hotlz's Stormy Sky and Black Soot distress inks around the edge and added some pearl dots.

Now for the "clean and simple" bit.  For "clean and simple" this generally means leaving a lot of white background and keeping embellishments to a minimum or not at all.

I scored around the edge of my card and then made a frame for my image using some Spellbinders dies.  I then used a Clearly Besotted Stamps Halloween sentiment and then did a doodle border around the edge.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
