CAS-ual Fridays #57

I'm kinda excited about this weeks challenge!  I had lots of ideas and no time.  (Busy busy with ball and important stuff like going to the pool! hehe!) ;)  SO when I put my first card together, I was happy it worked!  This week we are supposed to use something "clear"...vellum, acetate etc.  So here is my card using a little vellum...

CAS-ual Fridays #57

...and sand!  That's right!  I figured if glitter would work, then sand should too, right?  I added 3 strips of half inch score tape and then went out to the sand box!  B kept saying, "Mommy why are you putting sand on your paper?"  lol.  I added the vellum wrapped sentiment and some flip flops...love these new dies!!  

So that is it for today!  Here is this weeks challenge badge...

Karolyn Loncon is our sponsor this week so head on over at the CFC blog and you can check out this week's prize!  Can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for coming by!

  7. This is so amazing. Why did I never think to get real sand. I live in a beach town, for goodness sake. I've probably got a pile in the garage now with all the sand pails and shells. Super cute use of those flip flops, too.
