Clean and Simple

It is not often that I make a Clean and Simple card, and that is the challenge over at There's Magic in the Air this week.  They give you this pretty image "Softly Afloat" and even definitions of what a Clean and Simple card can be.  I found these definitions very useful.  I wanted to combine the colours at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog for this card.
I used Green card for the base, Summer Sun for the layer, Only Orange SU ribbon and Pink when colouring the butterfly.  I coloured with Copics and added diamontes for the centre of the flowers and glitter on the butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by,
