Shabby & Vintage & Inspired

Hi and Happy Monday y'all! I am checking in today to share a card I made for the Paper Crafts Inspired Style Challenge (create a project inspired by a vintage typewriter) and I am combining it with the Moxie Fab Shabby & Vintage challenge. Here's what I came up with ... What do ya think? I think she turned out pretty! :-) I stamped the typewriter and sentiment gray ink and then used some collage-y type paper from The Girls Paperie. Its like a cheater quilt fabric, but paper and the colors in it are so lovely. I did a lot of ink distressing on the edges and then added some ribbon, a button, and some pearls for good measure.

I am off to a get ready for a meeting this evening ... hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Typeset (Studio Calico); FYI (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Going Gray (Stampin' Up!); Chai, Chamomile (PTI)
Paper: Pink Pirouette (Stampin' Up!); Vintage Cream, Hibiscus Burst (PTI); patterned paper "Vintage Patchwork" from Paper Girl collection (The Girls' Paperie)
Other: Sweet Blush satin ribbon, New Leaf vintage button, twine (PTI); adhesive pearls (e. by Prima); foam tape
