The Outlawz: "Bling" it on!

It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. ~John Burroughs, "Winter Sunshine"


Good morning!
I imagine many of you are are fretting over the amount of snow piling up on your lawns.
Me ... not so much - more like the leaves falling off my tree.

I live in the "Valley of the Sun" ... getting snow here is a rare event.
I grew up in house at the base of South Mountain and I only recall a couple of times that it was cold enough that the snow not only fell but stayed long enough for us to trek up the hill and play awhile.

These days - if we want a snow fix, we gotta head up North ... or I make snowmen outta paper!

Today is the start of a new Clean & Simple Challenge at The Outlawz!
As Lynn asks don't we all love the Bling in some form or another? Sooooo our challenge this week is to added glitz and glimmer to our cards or projects while still keeping in CAS!

Here's my card

I have to admit - the snow peeples are not of my making. They were a gift and I thought they were perfect for this challenge because of all the lovely glitter on them! 


Card Size is A2
SUPPLIES
Card stock, rhinestones and embossing folder "Snowflakes": The Paper Studio
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Snowpeeples - Gift from Marie Franklin

CHALLENGES ENTERED

My kind of snowmen,Cara -- the kind that require no shoveling of snow. Lovely and I really like the bit of sparkle.
