An Actual CAS-ual Friday

Woohooo!  Thanks to my mum for CASually mentioning that she needed a special 80th birthday card for tomorrow I’ve actually made the CAS-ual Friday’s challenge….on a Friday!  YAY!

CFC03 - Project GallerySo today’s challenge is:     Bring the Bling

I’ve been using the very blingy Rhinestones from Stampin’ Up! and my embellishment of the moment (day, week, month, foreseeable future)… THE BUTTERFLY!!! Smile


IMG_9628I’ve gone with pastels and used some pretty flowery paper I’ve had in my stash forever!  I’ve printed a greeting and matted, layered and 3d’d it on to the top corner of the card and die cut the birthday lady’s name on to the bottom corner.

Then I’ve arranged the butterflies, made with the Beautiful Wings embosslit from Stampin’ Up, around the greeting and the name.

Finally – I’ve added the bling!  Bling for heads, bling for bodies and bling for trails!!  Well, it is a super, special birthday afterall!

I hope Mary likes it!  But I’d love to know what all you CAS lovers think.
