CAS Challenge

This week's SCS CAS challenge is to use bling. At first I thought that was an oxymoron - how can it be clean and simple and use bling? Well I do use bling on my cards, but as an accent, not center stage. I interpreted this challenge as focusing on the bling. So that is how this card came about. I purchased this Basic Grey Bling It package at Archivers this summer when I was visiting with my stamping friends in Iowa. I pulled out a lot of stamps that would look okay with the bling but finally came back to one of my new favorite sets - Everyday Button Bits by PaperTrey. I really liked mixing the bling in with the buttons. What I like most about the card is the sentiment - I love being able to curve the acrylic stamps so the sentiments can enhance the image.
Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: Stamps - PaperTrey; Ink - SU! Old Olive; Paper - PaperTrey; Misc - Basic Grey Bling It, Buttons
