Casual Fridays

Yippee Friday is here at last and the Friday cocktail hour in London is close approaching! Before I pour myself a Martini I have a card to share with you. This card is for the Cas-ual Fridays 'text' challenge.

I was a bit stuck with this challenge as I don't have a script stamp. I do have a script digi but decided to be super creative (for me) make my own 'script' card. I masked off part of an oval shape then just kept stamping the 'thanks' sentiment in memento 'potters clay' ink. I have made some of the text lighter by stamping it on scrap first. The border is from Craft Meow's retro set. I have just curved and coloured it in and then cut half of it out so that it bordered the my 'homemade' script. Also to fit in with the theme used a script embossing folder on 'white core' brown card. Once embossed I sanded it to give an 'old' style effect.

This was a fiddly card to make but a lot of fun as I was trying out a number of new ideas and I am pleased as they seemed to have worked eventually...........don't you think I deserve that Martini now....shaken not stirred and with a twist not an olive!!

Have a happy, casual Friday.
