First-Edition-Newsprint-Mocha-Boutique Birthday

I've been a busy, good girl, prepping and holding many Christmas-oriented classes. Finally my Christmas came early with my Occasions mini and Sale-a-bration preorder! It even came a day early - thank you, Mr. Brown! I laid out all the stamps and papers I haven't dug into yet, including some from previous orders.

Well, many of the items that arrived are pretty feminine, and I needed a card for my brother-in-law. So I picked a little here, a little there, just for the fun of playing, and here's what I came up with.

You'll see the strong influence from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #146. I decided to go without further embellishments, since it had plenty of stitching on it.

Stamps: Established Elegance, Puns from the Past; Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Mocha Morning DSP, Attic Boutique DSP, Newsprint DSP, First Edition DSP; Ink: Early Espresso; Accessories: Craft knife, 3" Circle die, Scallop Circle #2 die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love this!!! SO cute how you have the paper coming out of the typewriter. I think I really need to get me some Mocha Morning DSP. Love the colors.

I wasn't sure about this set, but I love your card! The layout is great! The addition of the paper at the top of the typewriter really adds to the card!
