Challenge #473 - Black & White

Hey LIMettes!

We're back with our latest challenge which is -

Just a quick note before we get started - if you have tried to contact us regarding a Guest Design spot, there has been a delay with replying due to ill health.
We will start up again with Guest Designers in 2023 (hopefully!!).


Unfortunately, we are seeing more cards in our gallery that are NOT Clean and Simple. We do ask that you check our guidelines for our challenge but here is a reminder -

Less is More is a Clean and Simple challenge, but what does clean and simple (CAS) mean and what are we looking for in your cards?
One main focal point
Lots of clean / open / non-patterned / non-textured space (often called 'white space' although not necessarily white) Space with NO PATTERN and NO TEXTURE on it
Minimal or NO layers
Minimal embellishments
Quick and easy to recreate
Cards that comply with our Glossary of Terms


Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

To be eligible for showCASe choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.

New work only please.
Please also include large areas of CLEAR AND CLEAN space with NO PATTERN, NO INK and NO TEXTURE
No backlinks


  1. A real challenge this time, because I really like full colors. But I succeeded to make a black and white card. Love the examples of the DT members. Very creative. Have a nice weekend, Ankie
