Walk Like An Egyptian

I've had this one in my head for ages, so decide I'd better get it out, before any permanent damage was done! (Oops too late!) It was inspired by the backing papers, which you can't really see. Last weekend Me and Him indoors called in on daughter and then nipped down to the craft shop, which is very near by. (How handy is that!) This shop is like the Tardis, an Aladdin's Cave, it just seems to go on and on, downstairs, round, up, along, packed with everything crafty, except the glue I wanted. Fabulous, I could have stayed there all day. Anyway, the lady in the shop kindly gave me a last years DoCrafts Creativity Magazine and attached to it was a free DoCraft CD and that's where the backing papers came from. The rest, the bands across and down were from my local not very crafty shop via KanbanCrafts and a backing paper book simply called, 'Papers Papers Papers'. And the swirl yay! Tim Holtz 'Alterations' of course. (There's two swirls, I've just used the one twice, and fixed them together. I've been wanting a swirl for ages, and treated myself with some birthday money mother-in-law gave me, after a quick nip into another crafty shop on the way home! (very much smaller, not so much 'stuff', but they did have my glue, and as always it was very busy. Hubby sneaked off to the Pub!) The tassel was off another card. (recycled) Coloured with Promakers, embossed, 3D-ed and fixed using Silicon glue.
The Font is a freebie of course! It's called GlyphBasic1. (There's also #2 and #3) You can Google the name or download it HERE and what does it say? It says.... Just For You...
I did find a few challenges for this card, one being a song Title I I'll just add that for now, as I think I might be too late for it! Hi to my lovely new followers, I'll give you a mention on my next (shorter) post! Thank you for stopping by! (**Ps...don't forget to play the music!)
