A new challenge blog....

Hello! I just found a new challenge blog that looks like it might be lots of fun! It is called CAS-ual Fridays. This week's challenge is to use text on your card. Not just a line of text, but multiple lines, like in the old page of text that I used here.

I found a gigantic book of "essential knowledge" at an antique show and picked it up a year ago. I knew that I wanted to use some old style text pages on some of my cards. It was very cheap and easy to find:) Be careful when you try to mount the text; my tape runner kind of "ate up" some of the page.

For me, this is a perfect masculine card. I like the simple style and plan to use it, with text of course, more often!
