Easter Blessings Spring CAS

This is my CAS (Clean and Simple) Stampin' Up! card for the Paper Players CAS "spring" challenge. CAS can be hard to do. You don't want your card to look like you just pulled out a stamp and applied it to a piece of paper. But you do want it to be without too much fuss. This card has three basic elements; an embossed background adds interest and anchors the elements, a banner adds balance and interest to the left side, and the art piece is the focal point and final important element.

CAS, The Paper Players, spring, floral, Banner Greetings, birthday card, Blessed Easter, Stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!

Daffodils, Tulips and Crocus really say spring to me. So far I have seen patches of crocus and dots of daffodils, but I haven't seen tulips. They won't be far behind though!
