CAS-ual Fridays, Color blocks

Happy Friday friends! It's the end of the week and I have a card to share with you for this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. The challenge this week is to create a clean and simple project using blocks of color. You can use cardstock, ink, etc. If you are feeling a bit stumped, you can use Michele's snazzy challenge badge for inspiration.
Our sponsor this week is The winner this week will earn a $25 gift certificate.

For my card, I chose to use blocks of cardstock. I was inspired by this first card of Cristina's from the latest Papertrey Ink release. I used my Happy die from PTI's Pretty Peonies and die cut some DeNami white cardstock. I love the subtle texture of this cardstock. I cut 1/4in pieces of cardstock and adhered them to a piece of scratch cardstock and then topped it with my diecut sentiment. After attaching it to my cardbase, I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment. My hubby and I will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in 1 month, so this card is for him.

Don't forget that you have until noon on Thursday to link up and play. I can't wait to see what you create!
