Krafty Chicks challenge #703 - CAS

Hello again friends; I hope you're doing ok and having a good week so far.  I'm sharing my card for this week's Krafty Chicks challenge and we are on Week 3 which is 'CAS' (clean and simple).  Our hostess this week is Diane and our guest designer is Helen.  
I'm enjoying creating CAS style cards at the moment and suprising myself as I always liked the look of them but felt too intimidated to try them.  I needed a masculine birthday card and always feel men prefer less fussy cards so this was the perfect challenge.  Here is my card:
A close up look:
I also decorated the inside:
I don't make horizontal cards very often as I prefer portrait style but I thought my design suited this orientation better.  I used graphic style stamps and a limited colour palette to maintain the clean and simple feel.  I began by cutting my card panel 4" x 5 1/4".  I stamped the 3 larger circles in black ink and then using smaller circles used an array of blue and yellow inks to make a slightly curved design.  Most of the stamps were from the same stamp set but I did grab some random small stamps from other stamp sets in my stash.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and nestled it under the curve of my stamping.  The panel was then adhered to my card base with foam tape.  No embellishments or anything else added and I'm really happy with the result.  For the inside I again cut the same size white panel and used the stamps to create a border on the left hand side.  I stamped my sentiment in black ink and then added the panel to the card base with double sided tape.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Simply Clean and Simple challenge - ATG CAS option pink
The Paper Funday challenge - ATG option no patterned paper
Time Out challenge - birthday theme (Happy 10th Birthday Time Out) - 5 challenges max
