Retro CAS Friday!!!

I have the perception this week went faster than any other.  Some people say that the older you get, the faster the time is perceived to you, since you have lived more and know how easy time goes by.  I guess when you are younger you feel there's not going to be an end, and then as you get older you suddenly realized all you have lived and how fast it went.

In this case, this week was full of work and lots of things to accomplish, so I guess that's why I had this perception of a faster week.  The thing is I am glad that today is already Friday!

I went retro with this card for the CAS Outlawz Challenges.  Do any of you remember an old phone booth?  I don't necessarily remember these red ones, but certainly some gray and blue ... LOL!


The card is CAS so it was made easily putting pieces of paper together and it is easy to reproduce.



I did some things and included some elements to support the vintage/retro look.  Some distressing ink to all edges provided an oldie look.  The dots, stripes and squares in the patterned papers helped a lot.    A half doily in the back (also inked) is key.  Finally, the golden eyelets helped a lot with the look I was trying to achieve.


These beautiful stamps (image and sentiment) are from Unity Stamp Co.  So I will link this up to Friday's Friends with Flair too...  Leave a comment for a chance to win great stamps.

Fabulous card Myra. Really like how you cut the panel you stamped the sentiment on - bigger at one end. It really leads you into the card.

What a great looking card! Yes, I do remember those phone booths - now, though, when I see them, I think of "Dr. Who". :)
