January 2013 Challenge - Clean and simple but NO embellishments

Firstly, we would like to wish all our followers a Happy New Year.  We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
Secondly, we have some sad news to share.  Tracey has decided to step down from the Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team.  She has been a wonderful member of the Design Team and we wish her well and hope to see her around Blogland.
Thirdly, we have a new member of the Design Team, Lozzy.
She kindly agreed to come and join us.  Please pop on over to Lozzy's blog and see her wonderful creations.
Despite it being Christmas and New Year we had a fantastic selection of entries for the December Challenge of a "Quick and Easy Christmas Card".  Thank you to all those that took part.  Make sure you check back next Friday to see who won the challenge and the winner the Design Team have picked.
Now what are we challenging you to this month?  The challenge that Sue has set us this month is "clean and simple but NO embellishments".  You might want to run and hide when you see this topic, just like some members of the Design Team wanted to do, but please come and have a go.

Lynette over at Sweet Pea Stamps will be donating a digital stamp to the winner of the challenge
Remember you don't have to use a Sweet Pea Stamp - although we DO love to see them being used.  

Sweet Pea Stamps have also started selling digital stamps so you don't even have to wait for the postman to call.

To help you with this challenge, here is the inspiration from the Fab DT
