Lawnscaping Challenge: Clean & Simple

Hi, everybody! Hope you’re having a great weekend so far! 
It’s finally starting to feel like Spring here, and I got out for a little while today and enjoyed the warmer weather!
One of my goals for this year is to play along with more online challenges and break out of my crafty comfort zones, so I made this card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge. “Clean and Simple” is not something I normally do, because I love adding layers, but I gave it a try!
I fell in love with Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Roll” set at Winter CHA, and I thought it would be a great set to use for this challenge:
And it happens that Scott & I went out for sushi last night, so my timing couldn’t be better! 
There are a few days left for this challenge, so if you want to link up an entry, just stop by the Lawnscaping challenge blog and get all of the details!
Thanks for stopping by today!
