Here Comes Summer!

Another card on the clean and simple front once again. Well, for me they are. Had a few challenges in mind when making it, although that's unusual for me as I usually make the card, then find a challenge, anyway I wanted to enter this week over at Less is More  as my cards never seem to fit the bill there.  No sentiment added as I think it could be useful for a few occasions that's coming up soon, Mother's Day or an Easter Card maybe or even a get well card,  not sure yet. A useful card to have in the box then!

Memorybox die, coloured with Tim Holtz distressing inks



 Hero Arts Stamps -  grasses, not sure what the flower cling stamp is,
 now there's a surprise!
Tim Holts inks
Ribbon - The Ribbon Girl
Memorybox - Large Butterfly
Punched Butterflies
Gems from stash
