C&S133 - Hope your day is Fabulous!

I had a great day this past Friday!! I got up early and took my dogs out for a nice long morning hike at the park and then I came home - did a few chores (yup) - and then spent the day in my craft room!  The Clean and Simple sketch came out and I was able to make the card right away (that never happens)...but, I had so many other posts lined up....I'm showing my card today.

Yes - can you believe this card is for a CLEAN AND SIMPLE challenge?  The challenge was to actually use some bulky items. I've had these flowers sitting in my craft room since TWO winters ago when I went to CHA in Orlando.  They finally made their way to a card.
I used my MS leaf punch and a PTI sentiment along with some additional pearl.  You can't see, but the black layer has embossed flowers on it (another hoard I've had for forever!!)

That's about it!  Here's the sketch if you want to play along:

By the way: There’s a new challenge blog in town with articles, swaps, interviews, videos, challenges, great prizes and MORE! Check out Lily Pad Cards!

Hope you're having a great week so far!!

Thanks for your visit!

Adorable card... the flowers look so nice and the monotone colours bring out their beauty in no ordinary way. Great sentiment as well.

Love your cards, Maria!

Wow that was a great day, especially when you can sit down and the card comes together. I saw that challenge and tried but nothing came together, but your card is stunning, love the flowers and the color combo. Have an wonderful day!

I am so glad you finally put this flowers to use. They look gorgeous on this card! I love the clean design.

I love your card!! Those green & black flowers are so stunning & elegant. I really like the die cut leaves behind then too. I was all set to go with this challenge, with my flowers all nicely laid out in my cardstock on Saturday....when I went into labour with my second baby boy!!.....so I doubt I'll be completing this challenge. LOL!! :)
