Back in the Challenge Mode!

This week at the CAS-ual Fridays blog the challenge is to "put a bling on it".

Here is what I put together..

The stamps are from Unity, the paper, ink and embossing powder is from Close To My Heart.  I used a Darice embossing folder to emboss the card and then sanded it lightly to reveal the design.  The trim is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  The sentiment was punched out with a McGill punch.  I blinged up the butterfly with some pretty, sparkly, stones.  I am really happy with the way it turned out and hopefully it will bring a smile to you when you look at it!

This week's challenge is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  The winner will not only win a $25.00 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp, but will also earn a guest spot with the Girl Fridays for the July guest challenge!!  Exciting!!
