Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 59 - No floral embellishments

The challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this week has been set by Fiona, and she has asked us to use no floral embellishments.  I thought it would be nice to make a plain card, and in fact, have very little embellishment on it at all.  The card was made using a plain white base card, and my main topper was a digi stamp from one of our sponsors today - the Digi Doodle Shop. The digi stamp was called running away, and I was totally smitten with the image of the small boy and his best friend.  The best thing about digi stamps is that you can resize them to the size you want - this one fits a 7" x 5" card perfectly!   I coloured the image using promarkers, and having cut the corners with a punch,  mounted it onto silver mirri card and then onto blue card.   The greeting was from my stash, and the sentiment at the bottom of the card was stamped and embossed with silver detail embossing powder.
