Clean and Simple

I don't know about you, but I find clean and simple to be anything but simple to pull off sometimes!  I love the look though and I find the challenge to create CAS cards well worth the effort.  Here's a few I've put together this week.
This one was made for this week's CAS challenge which was a pinterest photo inspiration in these fun bright colors. I don't often use oranges, but I like the look of my Pumpkin Pie base on this one.

I'm tossing my hat in the Summer Design Team Search for the CAS challenge and this is my card for the first round. The theme is a lobster bake with this photo collage as the main inspiration and the colors: Red, Navy or Aqua, Yellow and White as our marching orders. The beach/summer theme brought this image to mind and I loved the table cloth in the picture so I just had to bring some gingham! I sponged my sky, used markers on the hat, ribbon, and flowers and used a QTip with Pastels for the skin and dress. I purposely kept the coloring minimal to add to the clean look of the card.
Stamps: Summer by the Sea, Bloomin' Marvelous
