Je T'aime - A CAS-ual Fridays Challenge card...

I am suffering from withdrawal...I have not made a card for 2 months...hopefully all the stored up creativity can be put to good use now!  I have been wanting to make a card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge since it started...they are now on challenge 13 - oh boy...

This week's challenge is to make a 4" x 9" card...my first time making one of this size!


I cut out the sentiment "Je T'aime" with my Silhouette and distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Ink (vintage photo).  I adhered the sentiment to a panel of kraft cardstock (SU), also distressed with the same ink.  I cut a piece of lacy ribbon I had in my stash, coloured it a bit with some brown & green copics to dirty it up, tied the end with some linen thread (SU) and adhered it under the sentiment.  The kraft panel is mounted to some yummy bermuda Damask Shimmer Couture cardstock from A muse studio.

So happy to have made a card...finally!!
