Another great challenge from Watercooler Wednesday

This week Heidi Weaver has created a CAS (clean and simple) challenge which is all about Spring.  A lot of people find this type of card very difficult.  What is clean and simple?  According to the challenges which host only CAS (clean and simple), this is what one aims to do:  CAS (acronym for "clean and simple":  A design of card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments, most often single layered or minimal layers.

Do all those coloured squares in the challenge picture mean anything?  Nope!  They're just there to dress up the picture a bit.   Just so we're clear on the "white space".  
My card uses Wild Wasabi as my "white space".  I used the Wild Wasabi reinker and water on watercolour paper to make the background for this card.  It is layered on Mossy Meadows card stock.
The stamp set is from Gina K Designs and is called Handmade Botanicals.  A friend sent me this stamp set and I made this card to send as a Thank You.  The sentiment on the inside is from a retired stamp set call Lexicon of Love.
and this is the inside:
Thanks for looking.

  7. Hi Betty Lee. Glad to see you used the telescoping technique. You've done an awesome job. I really like the simplicity of the card front with just the embossing and the inside is fabulous. The Wild Wasabi just kicks it up a notch. Thanks for sharing.
