I have come to LOVE a clean and simple (CAS) design for my cards.  That's why I check out the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge each week to see what I can create with it.  This week's sketch worked well for this card.  And I'm also entering it in The Paper Players Clean and Simple - Spring Flowers challenge this week. 

The striped paper with those little dots, from the new "These Are My People" paper pack from Close to My Heart, is simple, so adding the pink flowers gave it just the pop it needed.  The coordinating stamp set shown below was used for the flowers, and the "Say It In Style" sentiment set is so versatile, you can create something for any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy some crafting time this week!

What a lovely Mother's Day card! Pretty pink flowers and the edge of b&w striped patterned paper are terrific together and create one sweet CAS card! So glad you shared with us at The Paper Players this week!
