Happy Sunday Peeps!!

I thought I would give the sketch challenge on the Stamping 411 blog a go and since I wanted to use the Stampin Up "Just My Type" stamp set I went with another black and white, well vanilla in this case, with a splash of color card!
I stamped the typewriter with black craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, it is so pretty and shiny IRL.  I stamped the "thank you" onto the paper are but I smudged it a bit so I stamped it again and made a little sentiment flag. Not how I wanted to do it, I wanted it to be directly on the paper like it was typed but it didn't work out that way. It is all good tho, I like the little flag sentiment piece. I added a small red flower punched with one of the small punches from the Itty Bitty punch pack and I used a small black rhinestone that came from the retired, I got them off the clearance rack awhile back, Black Flourishes in the flower center. The DSP is retired as well, it is from the Newsprint pack. I thought it went with the "typewriter" theme.

I used some basic black for the base and the next layer is very vanilla. I embossed a small strip of black with the square lattice EF for the bottom. The red is a strip punched with the scallop edge punch. I finished it up with some real red satin ribbon and a few more black rhinestones at the top!

Well, thanks for stopping by today and
