First ever CAS card!

Evening all, I know its late but I just wanted to get this card on and this is the first chance I have had today.
Now those of you who know me know I dont do clean and simple cards, even the thought of it brings me out in a rash!! lol But when I saw that the latest challenge over at Saturated Canary Challenge Blog was to make a cas card I said to my hubby, 'I think I should give this a go!' (really what was I thinking!!!).
But challenges are called that for a reason, its good to step out of your comfort zone (sometimes!)
The strange thing was, I actually enjoyed it, and for the first time ever I put a card together in less than an hour (well if you count the colouring too then thats a different story lol)
So here it is (should really have a drumroll!!),
My 1st EVER Clean and simple card, tada!!!

So whatcha think?

Entering into the following challenges

Saturated Canary - clean and simple
Deep Ocean  - lot of white
Crafty boots - new beginnings
Crafty cardmaking - no floral embellishments
make it monday - anything goes
