Simple More is More cards

Here is two cards that are very simple. I used the set from Flourishes called Beach Life.
I made one with a little more goodies than the other. Both are very simple and great to have on hand. I sponged some clouds on the left card, popped up the hammock, and added a brad. The right has some sponged shading for the blue sky but no clouds.
Be sure to check out Flourishes newsletter tomorrow for the Friday Focus with Faith. I will not be posting a card tomorrow. Hopefully I will get sometime to stamp this weekend, but have a lot on the plate. Have a wonderful weekend!
