Addicted to Stamps and More...Clean and Simple

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and it's my absolute favorite challenge..Clean and Simple!  You know I love CAS cards. I love their simplicity and I love that they can be "thrown" together in no time at all. The sponsor this entire month is Whoopsi Daisy and they are offering a prize of 2 sheets of digis (8 images). 
For my card, I wanted to use some of my new sneak peek items so I pulled out my new Wildflower Meadow background stamp and coordinating embossing folder. These two items made for an amazingly quick and simple card!
Oh I am just LOVING this combination. I wasn't too sure about how the embossing folder when I first saw it, but all I had to do was ink up the stamp with my markers, then slid it into the embossing folder with the stamped image lined up in the grooves and WALLAH!  It was seriously that easy!  I, of course had to add a few little blingies and my sentiment at the top, Banner Greetings. It really doesn't get much easier than that!
Stamp Sets: Wildflower Meadow, Banner Greetings
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Ink: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Pear Pizazz, Summer Starfruit
Tools: Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder
Accessories: Rhinestones, Dimensionals
