Ooh La La - Challenge 53 - Minimalist - White Space Essential!

Good Bank Holiday Monday morning to you all.  I hope you enjoy your day today and that the weather is kind to us all.
So, Monday again and that means time for another challenge at Ooh La La Creations.  The theme for this fortnight's challenge is Minimalist - White Space Essential.  Now I can do minimal but I'd rather not so this was a bit of a challenge for me.  However, with such fabulous CD's to work with, I wasn't stumped for long.
This card is made using the White Wonder decoupage images from the Fleur D'Imagination CD from Ooh La La which is available from their Store along with many other fantastic products - well worth a look!
I cut out two scalloped squares using my nestabilities and then embossed them with my swirls folder in my Cuttlebug and used these behind the image. 
I embossed the little flowers on the back to give them some shape before decoupaging them up.  I only used two layers as I wanted this to be very very simple.  The only other thing I added were three yellow tear drop gems at the bottom left of the card.
As the front of the card was so simple I decided to use one of the inserts from the same section of the CD for the inside.
I shall enter this card into the challenges at:
Fab n Funky - No DP
