Magnolia-licious Tuesday Challenge for March - Clean and Simple

It's  Tuesday challenge time again at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!  This months challenge is make a CAS or Clean And Simple card.  No fru-fru, no bells or whistles, no buttons, bows or flowers.  I sure hope you'll jump in and join the challenge.


One random winner will win a Surprise Gift from Magnolia-licious!

I want to take a little time to share with you about the Magnolia-licious online store.  You won't find a better resource for everything Magnolia anywhere.  They offer In-store Credit, up to date selections of regular and mini Maggies, Magnolia Doohickey, Memory Box and other dies, The Magnolia Ink Magazine and now the most wonderful offer ever!  There is a new club in town.
It's a Mini  Stamp Club.  Click on this link to take you directly to the store and find out how you can become a member.  It's a great deal.

So on with the show...
Here is the card I came up with.  

The front of my card. Two pretty flowers and a sentiment.  I used Spellbinders Classic Circles and Classic Scalloped Circles to create my focal point.  I used butterfly wings, punched out and cut in half for the leaves on my stems.

This is #3102 Forget Me Knot Tilda from the 2013 Special Moments Collection.
Click on her name at it takes you directly to the order page.

This is LF06 Tilda With Spring Heart from the 2014 Lost and Found Collection.
I'm sorry to say that she is not in the store at this time :-(
Please check with Diana if you would like to order her.

This is a side view of my card.  I didn't take a picture of the inside, but it is also very simple.  I added white cardstock  and a very simple sentiment from PrintWorksCollection which reads "Of all life's gifts you are my favorite".

Here are the few ingredients I used to create my CAS Sample:

Cardstock - SU, Xpress It Blending Card
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, Adirondack Lights (Shell Pink and Cloudy Blue)
Dies - Spellbinders Classic Circles and Classic Scalloped Circles
Punches - Martha Stewart Butterfly punch.
Sentiments - On front digital, on inside PrintWorksCollection
Adhesives - ScorTape, Double sided Mounting Tape (stash), Beacon's 3 in 1 liquid craft glue
