Pretty in Pink Clean and Simple

Good Day All,

Today I am a Guest Designer over at Quirky Crafts Challenges!! 
I would be so delighted if you all could join in the fun Challenge #1 - Clean and Simple. 

You all know what "Clean and Simple" means, right? Well most of us know it's not a lot of bling, not a lot of texture, stamping, fancy or fussiness, right. While I was making my card I had to keep this in mind cause I don't make very many CAS cards. My first one was really cute but had a lot of layers, and that was not CAS (will be posting at a later tiime)! For me CAS is not an easy task, I really have to work at it, I like layers, texture, background and of course stickles (bling). So to do a CAS card is a bit time consuming even though it should be so, so very easy. 
Well..... I tried again and WHAA- LAAAA! I think I did a good job on making Clean and Simple. 
So here is my Clean and Simple card, hope you all like it. 

****I got to play with my NEW Stamp Set from Heartfelt Creations - Scenery Builders****
It's the tall grass with the little pinkish flowers; it stamps like a charm. 

***I just love this little Girl image, she is just so pretty. I love the bonnet 
reminds me of Spring and how little girls used to dress for Easter. 
 Ok, so what do you think?? I can't remember a time when I've used so little items on a card. Lol  Really all it was is a digi stamp, rubber stamp, inks, ribbon and cardstock.  Lol   Is that Clean and Simple or what?   :D  The inside is not stamped as I thought I would keep as a blank card to write a note to a friend.

Stamps:StitchyBear Digi Stamp - Pretty In Pink; NEW Hearfelt Creations stamp (Background) - Scenery Builders; InkyAntics - used Thinking of you from Stamp Set Flower Kittens
