Happy Spring card

Sunny and warm in the sixties yesterday, cold and snowy today ... It's nearly spring in Colorado! And it's a perfect time to make a "Happy Spring" card for one of my sisters.

Also, I received an awesome Simon Says Stamp haul today in the mail and thought I'd try out some of the new products (new to me anyway)!

And, bonus(!), I'm entering the card I made into two challenges:

     1. Lawnscaping Challenge #77: Bling It! (my second card entered into this challenge)
     2. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Simon Says Tag It

Here it is. (I'm really into rainbows lately.) And it really feels like one of my first Clean and Simple (CAS) creations. :) It is also my first time using Distress Ink. (I love the colors.)
For my sister Jamie
The card may look CAS to me, but I did cover the tag in glitter with my Wink of Stella clear brush marker. I hope it is easier to see in the following photo.

Thanks for looking, and have an awesome day! :)
