Clean and Simple Card FTL191

I haven't crafted for a couple of weeks, and I really missed it. I feel like I have this constant pull to my craft room. But then half the time I spend in there is just on the computer looking at other people's stuff lol.
So, today I was determined to make SOMETHING. Anything really. But I wasn't up for a full on scrapbook page. So I decided to make a simple card. And what better place to go for simple inspiration than the Clean & Simple blog? I just love their sketches. They are simple, but you can make it whatever you like. It is a perfect jumping off point.
For some reason when I saw this week's FTL191 sketch, my mind immediately went to my long unused Season of Friendship stamp. Maybe it was the tree. I don't know.
And lately, I've really been liking yellow. It's such a sunny and warm color.
So, this is what I came up with. Let me know what you think!
Cardstock: American Crafts for base--not sure on the small flower pieces, they were just old scraps
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny Flutter Butter Collection--my fave ever BB collection!
Stamps: Stampin UP Season of Friendship, Sentiment is from Stampendous
Ink: Stampin Up Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun
Rhinestones: Queen & Company
Circle and Flower Punches: Stampin Up
Pen: Le Pen by Marvy/Uchida

A card, a card from Shell ! I'm so glad to see you back crafting and doing cards again. This one is beautiful in its simplicity! Love the soft yellow.
