Wonderful You ~ Clean & Simple

Let's get this week started! Going to be a beautiful one here in Ottawa, sunny and warm so I believe we will be spending a lot of time outside taking it all in between naps and such :)

This card that I am sharing with you all today I have made with a few challenges in mind. I used the colour theme from Create with Connie & Mary, the Mother's Day theme from The Paper Players and I will be entering this card  in the Design Team call at House of Cards under the Clean and Simple category. Would you believe this is my very first one layer card? 

I know some of you might think this is a strange Mother's Day Card but to be perfectly honest I was a little tired of flowers & butterflies and being that my Mama is from the lovely province of Newfoundland, a sea theme card is perfect for her!
