Just my type!

**This is my 2nd post today, please scroll down for the SSC Color Challenge...

I know I already posted today, but I couldn't wait to get this one up!! I'm so in love with this October Afternoon paper that I want to wallpaper my Stamping room in it!!! Seriously...check this out.
I love the bold pattern and the contrast of the yellow on black!! I tend not to use that often as it always seems bumblebee-ish to me. And how cute is the typewriter & sentiment...also October Afternoon from the Thrift Shop Collection.

For today, I decided on a bit of a vintage-y look. I started out by distressing the patterned paper. Then I added my scallop border. I was looking to do a large scalloped border, so I used my circle punch, cut the circles in half and adhered them to the card. Next came the ribbon, which I folded on top of itself a couple of times (I'm digging that lately.) Then I added my typewriter and the sentiment. I thought I was finished, but something was missing. I had two leftover circles from my border & decided to crumple them up and make a cute little flower embellishment!!!

A close-up of the details...

What do you think? I think I'm in love, it's JUST my type! (That was corny, sorry!)

Have a happy Thursday :)

This is SO cool, Mo! I love how you combined the papers - it's so striking! And that flower and sentiment tie it off perfectly!
