CAS-ual Friday's Bling

I hope you've enjoyed your weekend!  We had a nice, quiet relaxing weekend!  I think those are my favourite kind!   I managed to get a few cards done this afternoon while my dearest husband took our two monkeys swimming!

So, if you haven't read, heard etc....I have been picked to join the Freshly Made Sketches Design Team!!! I am so incredibly excited and honoured!  I can't wait to get working with Lesley and her fabulous Clean Team!  Check out their blog on Wednesday for my first contribution!!!

Today's card is my submission for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  This week's challenge was to create a clean and simple card that used gemstones, glitter or anything that sparkles.  I saw the challenge and thought to myself - this one's going to be easy!  I started creating my first card for one of my best friend' turned out disastrous and will be the highlight of tomorrow's blog post!  After that it took me a while to come up with another one.  Oh the joys of card making!

Thanks for stopping by!
