Less is More Challenge

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down for my first post.

When I was posting my OLW card to Jennifer's blog, I came across her post about a new CAS challenge blog, Less is More.  I love challenges, so thought I'd check it out.  Chrissie and Mandi will post a new CAS challenge every Saturday.  Sounds like fun to me!

Their first challenge is to use black, white, and pink on a CAS card.  I have made a few cards with the set I used for this challenge, but haven't posted them yet.  I am working on different looks using the same stamp, so I came up with yet another look, and used that for my card today.  I will post all of the cards I came up with in the near future.

I just got the typewriter alphabet stamps on sale at Hobby Lobby yesterday, and they worked perfect on this card.  I omitted the "hello" on the sentiment stamp so I could stamp it below the typewriter with my new stamps.  The ellipsis was made with a marker.  I cut a slit in the typewriter so I could slip the white paper into it.  The top of the paper is popped up on dimensionals.

Stamps - Hero Arts My Type, EK Success Antique Typewriter Upper and Lower Alphabet sets
Paper - Pretty in Pink, GKD PL white
Ink - Memento tuxedo black
Accessories - craft knife, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!

Now I must really get going on the basement.  Hubby is giving me looks because I still haven't packed anything today.

But I have to eat lunch first!
