Clean and Simple Hubby!!!

Hello folks and welcome to my newest followers, Melissa, Lizy and Katina.  You can click on the photos of any of my followers and pop over and check out all their lovely blogs.  Lots of inspiring ideas to be found out there.
Well, it's hubby's birthday today and yes, he is clean AND simple but so is the card I made for him.  To be honest, he doesn't really 'get' the significance of cards so I don't put a huge effort into his, so CAS works well for him.
This one is for two challenges - CAS(E) This Sketch #15 (this is one of the best sketches I have ever followed) and CAS-ual Fridays #90(use black and white and one other colour).
For this quick card I used two strips of washi tape, die cut two stars and stamped the sentiment and the grid on the white star in Lucky Limeade.  I used to hate the colour green (school uniform colour!) but I am really getting to like all the lovely shades of green that SU! does.

God bless you today and always.
