CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

I feel so bad that I haven't done a post in such a long time, I need to get back in the swing of things. But the thing is I know it's not going to happen for another week or so. I was asked by my church to be in charge of the Young Women camp this simmer. So I have been crazy busy trying to get everything ready for that. We leave in less then 2 weeks and I am getting nervous, but mostly excited. I have really enjoyed getting to know the girls in my church and spending time with them and figuring out some fun things to do up at camp.
 Anyway this is totally cheating but this is also going to count as my Maniac Monday post for this coming week. But as soon as we get back from camp I will hopefully be back on track! 
So this week I am taking part in the CAS-ual Friday Challenge

CFC55: Show us your Clean And Simple stylings with bling.  We're looking for gemstones, glitter, anything that will make your projects sparkle.

So this is what I came up with. 

I was thinking of my husband as I made the card. I am going to get back from camp the day before Father's Day so I decided to make a card for him for the challenge. He likes the simple cards cause he his a man, LOL.

I used CTMH dimensional banners which you can buy here from my CTMH web page. 

I chose a phrase from the glitter rub-ons which sadly are no longer available. 

Then I chose the red glitter rub-on sheet.

This is what it looked like in the end.

I used a Christmas paper pack from CTMH which you actually can't buy right now because it's out of season. But It's called Believe.

Here is one last picture of my card laying down. I hope you all can see the glitter mist spray on the card, I used Art-C glitter spray, in silver. I am not a pro at the spray so sadly the paper wrinkled and the top left corner got a little too much. But I decided to bring in the silver a bit more by using gray baker's twine instead of the green that I had originally  decided on. I also punched a border out for the edge of the paper with an ek success punch and I used the sky CTMH cardstock. 
I sponged the tag with sky ink from CTMH and used glitter gel on the paper to give it just one more pop of bling! 

 Thanks everyone and see you in a little over a week. (=

PS: Forgot to mention that the card is 3.5X3.5 and the layers are cut at 3X3 (striped paper) and the small layer is cut at 2X3 (red flannel layer).    (=
