Happy Spring! Yep, today is the first day of spring and I almost forgot. I love this time of year, it's not too hot, not too cold and best of all, our snow is gone!

I wanted to post the card that I made for Monday's clean & simple challenge. The challenge this week was a color challenge. We were to use shades of green and brown plus white or cream.

My card isn't as 'clean' as I would normally make, but it was really simple. I colored the tree stamps using my SU markers and then stamped then onto my card. The deer and owl images were inked, stamped, and then I cut them out.

My grass is Old Olive card stock that I crimped and then I cut small slits. I guess I should have sponged the sky, but I thought I'd better stay within the colors of the challenge. I didn't add a sentiment on the front of my card because I figured the front was busy enough and I can always stamp or write something inside.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all had a great first day of spring!

Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers, Forest Friends
Card Stock: White, Old Olive, Chocolate chip
