CFC82--Even the Score

Welcome back, friends.  I'm feeling a little better today, thanks to staying in bed most of the morning. :)  Luckily we have a rare quiet weekend ahead, so hopefully a few more days of rest will help me feel normal again.  Thanks for all of your well wishes.

This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is sponsored by Scor-Pal, so naturally we're asking you to use scoring in a creative way on your clean and simple design.

My simple design took just a few minutes to create.  I used a beautiful piece of shimmer paper from Suzanne's Christmas kit, scoring lines at an angle and stamping the sentiment along the top.

I adhered the paper to a piece of black cardstock to make it more sturdy, then wrapped some pretty silver twine from Jeanne's Christmas kit below the sentiment.  I popped the panel up on foam dots on a black card base and called it done.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Black)
Shimmer paper:  Stardream Metallics (Opal)
Stamp:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Countdown)
Ink:  Tsukineko (Staz-On Black)
Tools:  Martha Stewart (Scoring Board), Fiskars (hole punch)
Other:  Michaels (Silver thread)

I hope you'll join us this week, and check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Girl Fridays!

Have a great start to your weekend.  :)
