Lily Pad Inspirational Challenge#4

I didn't have a post ready for today (Saturday) - so on Friday I knew I wanted to make up a quick card. Luckily, Lily Pad Cards was having an Inspirational Challenge to pick any card or project in the month of July that was posted on their blog and make a card using it as inspiration!

Well, Vicky ALWAYS inspires me! (Click on her name to see the video of the card she made)

Here is my card:


And here is Vicky's card that inspired me:


For my card, I used a Hero Arts typewriter stamped with Distress Ink. I cut a slit in the top and put in the piece of paper stamped with a PTI sentiment.  I punched an EK Success notebook border punch and popped up that panel.  I kept it pretty simple, but I'm happy with the result!

Make sure to stop by Lily Pad Cards and play along with this challenge!

Thanks for your visit!

Love this card and how you put the paper in the typewriter. The brown paper behind it looks like leather, love it all. Have a great weekend, we just keep getting hotter, next week, the coolest temp is 105, I am so over this heat now.
