CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #3–Bring On the Bling!

Hola!

So are you having as much fun with the CAS-ual Fridays challenges as we are?!!  Seriously, the entries have been mind-bogglingly (yes, that’s a word that I just made up! LOL) amazing and so freaking clever!!

CFC03 - Bring on the Bling
This week’s challenge is just as fun as the last two – BLING!!  Like who doesn’t love to add bling to their projects?!!  Especially with Clean and Simple projects because it’s an easy way to make those CAS designs really pop, right?!  So all you have to do is create a clean and simple design and add some bling – rhinestones, glitter, pearls – whatever you’ve got, bling it on!!

CFC03 - Nikki Sivils
Nikki Sivils is the sponsor this week and has provided a very generous and fantastic prize.  You’ll have to head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog in order to see what that prize is, however.  Hey, a girl can’t share all her secrets, right?!  LOL  Thank you, Nikki Sivils!!

CFC03 - Bling It Out
This is my response to the Bling It On challenge.  I recently acquired a super fun new stamp set from A Muse Studio called Glamour Girl.  When I saw that hairspray image, I immediately thought of adding a Zva rhinestone flourish in place of the spray.  Fun, right?!  And how funny is that sentiment?!  You can find all the details of the challenge, as well as more beautiful inspiration from the other Girl Fridays over at the CAS-ual Fridays blog.  What’cha waitin’ for?!!  Get movin'!!
PRODUCTS USED:
STAMPS:  A MUSE STUDIO (Glamour Girl)
INK:  FRESH INK (Slate and Pool Pigment Ink)
PAPER:  PAPERTREY INK (Smokey Shadow and Raspberry Fizz CS); FRENCH POPTONE (Sno Cone CS); NEENAH CLASSIC CREST (Ultra Smooth Solar White CS)
ACCESSORIES:  WE R  MEMORY KEEPERS (Corner Chomper); PAPERTREY INK (Tin Types Impression Plate); PROVO CRAFT (Cuttlebug); SPELLBINDERS (Labels 9 and Classic Circle Dies); ZVA (Rhinestone Flourish); STAMPIN’ UP! (Self-Adhesive Rhinestones)

That’s it for me today, peeps.  I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this uber fun and sparkly challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I’m headed to Las Vegas for a fun little weekend getaway with my sister.  Wish me luck!!
