Clean and simple...... Moi?

Wow what a beautiful day here in the sunny east of Scotland!!
The sun is shining, the sky is blue and it's not that cold either!!! Blissss!!! Roll on spring is what I say!! although now that I said that it will probably snow!! Lol!!
Today I have a clean and simple card to share!!
Phew, no flowers ribbons or lace!!!!!but I must confess I really love the way it has turned out!!! Although there isn't any way to hide mistakes in this type of card!! come on which of us hasn't popped a flower on a smudge or wrinkle!! Lol!!
The image is of course by the lovely Krista smith! over at saturated Canary digi's . This Fab Digi is called Ellies Birthday! I have coloured her with my copics, I felt she called for some nice vibrant colours! the quote is from an Inkadinkadoo set all the way from simon says stamp in America! and the cardstock is bazzil and buttons stampin up!
