Was fun to make something a little bit different.

Hi,
I just came across this sentence without the subject 'it'. It's exactly as we'd say it in Russian, but it's unusual to see such a pattern in English.

The context: "Take Me To Church by Hozier, as a duet with my friend ... . Big thanks to her for her awesome contribution. Was fun to make something a little bit different."

I wonder to what extent this is considered correct in English.
Thanks in advance.

    You'll come across it in informal speech and writing but to be absolutely grammatically correct, it needs "It".

    It sounds perfectly idiomatic and natural to me in informal usage, but it wouldn't be accepted in an essay except as part of directly quoted dialogue. :)
