CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC3

Wow What a busy week, things here don't ever seem to slow down! Between Beths kinder activities, and all the other little mum things, as well as prepping and teaching a workshop, there was not to much times left.
But his week i made an effort to get out to my workshop, as soon as the kids are in bed of i would run, and get in a hour or two of card making or scraping! ..... even thought I'm nearly frozen into a ice block out in there......its worth it ,  it makes me HAPPY.

The new challenge at CAS-ual Friday is announced...... every Friday .(duh)  If u haven't had a chance pop over there and see what all the goodness is about! 
This week we are all challenged to use Rhinestones, Pearls, Glitter, Stickles... Gee that should be easy! Don't we all just love a bit of bling! OH and we must keep it Clean And Simple ( CAS)   Ok so that made it just a little harder lol.

I sat down and put this card together....then when it came  to photographing  it , i realised that may just be a bigger challenge!  so please forgive the  photos!  Every photo the glitter didn't sparkle and show up right until it was on this unusual angle!
Oh and if any ones got a hint on how to  take better photos bring it on HEHEHEH

This was so much fun and really simple to make.
Started by blending a piece of card with a mix of stormy sky and Victorian velvet distress!.
I used a Kaszazz design adhesive they come in a great range of designs, and can be used with embossing powder, glitter , foils, perfect pearls and more! This design is called Butterfly swirl ( 10140) 
On top of the adhesive i sprinkled Fairy dust glitter , Pralines and cream !   mmmm nearly good enough to eat lol Unfortunately the pic doesn't do it justice it is so yummy!
Stamped believe underneath and put on just a little more bling with a row of sticky rhinestones.

Hope you all enjoy my take on the challenge!

If you like, stick around as i share another card i made this week.

With the new release of products from Kaszazz just a week ago , i have been so busy trying out the new stamps. Straight away i was drawn to one in particular
4481L Dragon
Here is the fist card that i made with it...
Please tune in tomorrow for another card made with this same stamp @ my take on the Play date cafe challenge.

I simply stamped and embossed the image then filled in the details with smooch inks using a water brush blending the colours. The cut out and matted on the bahama2200 and black card stock. The coloured mat is a combination of distress inks blended.
