HB2U

This is my CAS-ual Fridays creation for this week.  The challenge is to use bling on your Clean and Simple project.  I love this challenge blog, and I am learning so much about the CAS style.  The challenges here really get me thinking in a whole new way, and the participants are so talented and gracious.

This creation is about as far from my usual as I could possibly get. I love that!  When I saw the challenge on Fruday, I went through my stash in my head thinking about what blingy things I had to work with.  I immediately thought of MFT's Bling Bet - a set I have had for a long time but never used.  Then I thought of SU's red glitter paper and my new By the Number dies from PTI.  Put 'em together with some Kaiser self adhesive rhinestones and whaddaya got?? Blingy HB2U!  I have not looked at this week's CAS-ual Friday entries yet. I am on my way over to post this and to be wowed by all of the amazing creations I know I will find there.  If you have not gone yet, go on over and play.  Have a wonderful Sunday!
