STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop


Hi everyone, Glad you could join us (-:

The second CSS Group hop for the month of March is all about simplicity and sparkles!
Our challenge was to ...

Create a clean and simple (CAS) card or project,
 use only embellishments that sparkle (glitter, rhinestones, etc.)

OK - I'm in trouble...cannot do CAS...
soooooo headed over to team mate and sweet friend, Vicki Dutcher's blog,
to get my CAS mojo going LOL.
landed on this card of her's and then I was good to go!
This is from her Feb 5th post...

and here's my first card for this hop casing Viki's CAS above (confused yet LOL)
All of my cards were created using Theresa Momber's "Birds and Blossoms"
my bling is the silver pearls in flower centers

ok, now I'm on a roll - here is my second card
my bling is green stickles

and my last card, the bling is blue pearls done with Vivid Pearl Pen


WOOOO HOOO I created CAS cards....and if these aren't considered CAS - don't tell me LOL

Now you should have come from sweet, talented blog of Kay Simmons and if you didn't and want to start at the beginning, you can click here ...
now your next stop is over to awesome, adorable blog of Lori McAree....

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! 
Look for the announcement on Tuesday, April 2.

Enjoy and hope you found something that got your sparkly CAS mojo going!
hugs,

Once you got jumpstarted into the clean and simple with a bit of sparkle you went at top speed. Your cards are all amazing. I adore each and every one of them. My favorite one though is the border of leaves patterned one.
