CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC3

CFC03 - Project Gallery

Welcome to our Third Challenge at 
CAS-ual Fridays 
The challenge dedicated to 
Clean And Simple Design!
Rhinestones, Pearls, Glitter, Stickles...these are a paper crafters jewels.
Your challenge is to use Bling on your new, Clean And Simple project.

We've got a super sponsor this week:

Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker is a scrapbooking company specializing in premium papers and embellishments that will make you smile. From whimsical designs to cute, cuddly creatures, Nikki Sivils designs straight from her heart hoping to inspire creativity and 
expressions of love and life.

This weeks TGIF Club winner will receive this super cute paper collection valued at $15

Now for a bit of Housekeeping...
CAS can be a bit subjective, 
but rest assured our Girl Fridays know Clean And Simple when they see it.  
As we've made our visiting rounds, we've noticed a few entries that aren't quite Clean And Simple in the gallery.  Up until now we've had an open policy on combining challenges and we think this may have confused some players who like to 'pile it on' and aren't quite grasping the Clean And Simple element of our challenge. We have nothing against this type of play, but lets face it, its nearly impossible to combine a bazillion challenges and still keep it CAS!  
To eliminate any confusion and take the pressure off, we've decided to limit the number of challenges that can be combined here at CAS-ual Fridays to 4. 

Our goal is to provide a fun challenge that inspires you all to create Clean And Simple.  
Some of you are new to Clean And Simple, or CAS, and are playing along to see if this could be your design niche. We want you to feel welcome and hope you will continue to play and grow while you fine tune your CAS skills here with us. 
Afterall, we were all new to this at one time too!  
For those of you who are completely at home in the CAS genre, 
we know you're coming here to get your CAS on and we love it!  
Whether you're a player or a reader, 
we know you are all here for a weekly dose of Clean And Simple inspiration!

 We have a phenomenal team of Girl Fridays 
who provide new Clean And Simple inspiration for you each week. 
And if you want to see more shining examples of Clean And Simple design, 
lets not forget our list of winning creations in our 
TGIF Club and The VIP's tabs at the top of the blog! 
We want everyone to be eligible to join these growing lists so please be sure to familiarize yourself with our updated Rules also located at the top of the blog.

And now...prepare to be dazzled by our Girl Fridays!

Amazing cards! It´s my first visit here and I love these kind of challenges! I´ve added mine!


Tiffany Did... said...

Wow - what a great site! This is the first time visiting, and I already love it. I have always felt so overwhelmed at a lot of challenges because my style is just not all of that "extra", and I always felt as though I was doing something wrong. However, I am so glad I find a site dedicated to my style and to know I do fit into a style. Thanks so much! You have a new loyal follower!!

Aimes said...
