Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge #68 - Summer Sunshine

So I am interrupting my strawberry week with this bright and cheery card. I will have my last strawberry card post tomorrow (Saturday). Make sure you pop back in to see it!!
But today's card is for the Clean and Simple challenge on SCS. This week the challenge is a theme: Summer. I can hardly wait for it ... summer that is! We have had a very cold and wet spring so far. In fact, I just sat through a very wet and cold soccer game and it is supposed to snow on Saturday! Are you kidding me???!!!
So, I really enjoyed making this card, even though I'm not sure how Clean and Simple it is. I cut 2 pieces of green designer paper from my scrap bin with pinking sheers. Then I glued them onto the card and added the yellow polka dot ribbon (which I won from Fika's blog candy). Then I added the sun, which is actually a flower from Beautiful Blossoms (Papertrey Ink). Next, I sponged on the rays by using large post it notes. Finally, I added a small bit of yellow paper for the middle of the sun and stamped the sentiment along the hills (from Around and About from Papertrey Ink). The seniment placement is my favorite part of the whole card!! Well, I do like those sunny rays too!!
Remember, drop back in tomorrow to see my very last strawberry card!!
Have a great day.

This is absolutely adorable! Great colors, and I definitely need to try this idea with some of the patterned papers in my stash...
