Clean and Simple #64

Didn't get a chance to participate in last week's Clean and Simple Challenge, so made a point to do it this week. The layout has always been an old stand-by for me. Only, I didn't notice until I uploaded the pictures that the sentiment was supposed to be on the top. Oh well! I actually think it works better on the striped pattern anyways.

I didn't really have a plan of the direction I was going with the card, I just started with DCWV's Nana's Nursery. Once I had the base, I remembered about a color challenge I had run across in my blog hopping on Saturday from Just Us Girls. So, that's how the red flower came to be.

I still have another card I made specifically for this challenge. I hope to post in the next couple of days. (I told you I was productive on Sunday!) Thanks for looking!

Cardstock: CTMH (Colonial White), PTI (Pure Poppy)
Patterned Paper: DCWV (Nana's Nursery Baby Boy Mat Pad)
