August Challenge card.. Clean and simple

Welcome back to my blog!
It's raining here today and suppose to be that was for a few days, hopefully not to long cause July zoomed away. I would really like to enjoy August before we get into fall and thrown into winter again. Time zips by so darn fast.
So the next few days will be a perfect day for making cards and crafting cause you really can't do to much outside on days like this.
The challenge at Whimsy this month is clean and simple. 
What is your take on clean and simple, some people add a few things just not as many as they typically would. I think clean and simple is not to much for patterned paper, no embellishments, and clean lines. So this is my challenge card for clean and simple, very faint patterned paper with one piece of ribbon and a bow. This card to me could have a ton more stuff on it. If you have seen my work before you will know what I mean, and is you haven't been here before thank you for stopping by. I love the detail of flowers and embellishments. So I really hope that you decide to make a card and put it in our challenge this month at Whimsy for a chance to win some terrific stamps from Whimsy.
This stamp is from designer Marika Collins and is called Summer. If you would like more information about the details of the stamp click here. You should click here and jump over to the Whimsy inspiration blog to join in on our challenge clean and simple for this month, or to just get inspired to create something wonderful today.

A bit closer look at the image "Summer"
Supplies: Copic markers, Kaiser patterned paper., Bazzill cardstock, Offray ribbon.

Not a very big supply list!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
