Three challenges, two cards, and one little me...

 I think the title explains it all.
There are some great challenges out there and I got my craft on, so here are two blinged out rainbow creations just in time for summer.

 The black
 Die-cut the letters with the cricut then backed them with glittered cardstock.


The White
Virginia, this ones for you
Colored and cut out these pentagons.  Then used glitter glue to add some subtle bling to the background.
 

CAS-ual Fridays asked us to "Put a bling on it" so I did


A rainbow of inspiration from Virginia's blog

and last but not least
What's this you ask?
Well I know all us card makers tried our best to making it on to Paper Crafts Gallery Idol top twenty and with the amount of entries this was not an easy task.  BUT we still all want to play along right!?!  So the lovely and talented Keren Baker has set up a flickr group so we can all join in on each round of challenges.  There are so many awesome cards and crafters that didn't make it so link up people!
