CAS-ual Friday!


Thank goodness it's Friday!

And that means it's time for another Clean & Simple Challenge 
Thanks to everyone who played this past week---what a great turnout!
Woo hoo!
This week's challenge is all about the bling.  Yes, BLING!



You all know that I am terrible at actually USING 
the rhinestones that I purchase and hoard, 
and I tried... 
honestly I did. 
Alas, I just could NOT add more than three to my card. 
*sigh* 
I know I know.
I'm working on it.

This BD card goes out to my pal Bobbie, the sweetest paper crafter I know. She turns...29 is it today darling? *wink wink*

Our CAS challenge is sponsored this week by Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker!

We had so many awesome entries this past week 
and I really LOVED checking them out.
 It's so fun to find new blogs and see new designs!

So if you are feeling the sparkle and want to create 
something with shine and glam
check out the bling challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great weekend!

You should absolutely keep me away from your gem stash! I like to use them like they grow on trees! hehe!
Your card is fab! I love the soft score lines you added and your well placed gems are the perfect bit of sparkle :)

Wow, wow, wow! I adore this design, Dana - the amazing texture that the score lines add, the awesome medallions with the bling in the middle, and the color scheme just make me swoon!

Three gems!! That is fabulous, Dana! I actually thought three gems work the best!I love the pattern, colors and the gems are the icing on the cake! Scrumptious!

Sue Ann said...

Dana you do not bling ...... you are always so styled up on your creations!!! BUT I do love the bling on this card and the focal of the giga ....... I might have to join this party today and get out a little bling peace sign in honor of you :) xoxoxo

Karen B. said...

We must be in the same boat. Tons and tons of beautiful gems and hardly use any of them, or at least more than three on a card... Your creation is just beautiful!

Christina said...

I think this is absolutely perfect with just the three gems. So bold and modern! Love the subtle scored lines grounded by the single strip of black cardstock.

Lindsay said...

I {heart} this color combo! I am going to use it sometime, cause I love it! Great card Dana! Those medallions are awesome against that green!

Rebecca said...
