A Day Late and a Dollar Short for a Challenge

Happy Monday!!!

I cannot BELIEVE that this weekend went by so fast!! The summer has flown by and it seems to have never been.

Since I had time, my intention was to flood my blog with card posts this week but alas, my mojo has flown the coop. I did a bit of organizing, some coloring and die cutting of images, hoping that it would come back but it didn't. The results? Only one card made for some challenges.

For my inspiration, I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #400 and the Inspired by Challenge to create this card. Unfortunately, I didn't upload this in time for the sketch challenge. I hate when I do that!!

I started off this card with some SU! Coastal Cabana cardstock and a piece of scrap patterned paper with type on it as my jumping off point. This paper I "believe" is from Scenic Route? I cut off the edge when I was cutting up all my scraps so I am not sure. I wanted to make the typewriter as close as I could to the one in the photo BUT I didn't have the exact shade of cardstock I was looking for.

I then stamped a white,  die cut square with a birthday sentiment from Sweet Pea Designs "You're My Type" stamp set in gray. I then covered it with a bit of Distress Ink to match the background paper.

I then added the matching typewriter die cut over the stamped panel. My last step was to add a Taylored Expressions "Simple Strips" sentiment banner over the square using foam adhesive.

Simple but fun card. And I didn't use any Glossy Accents!!!

I am also going to enter this card into the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: All About Occasions and TGIF Challenge-Embossing Powder.

That is all from me today. I thank you for stopping by!!! Have a GREAT night
