Vintage typewriter

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day ........

Good morning bloggers, it's a fabulous bright sunny day with clear blue skies and the cherry tree in the back garden is blossoming - what more could I ask for on my birthday?????

Firstly a huge thankyou to my teamies at MAWTT for their fabulous birthday cards and they can never tell me again they can't do vintage - they have all made me a card in my style and they really are the best. THANKS GIRLS.

Secondly is anyone going to Birmingham NEC next weekend? I will be there on Sunday the 27th, so let me know if you are around and we can say hello. I am already going to seek out Sarah - you must let me know where you will be Sarah!!
So onto my card for today. My inspiration came from the Gingersnap challenge - typewriters, with a monthly theme of the working world and Simon Says Stamp - which is Birthday.

The typwriter image is a download from the Graphic Fairy and I overlaid it onto some vintage text paper that I lightened and blurred in Photoshop Elements, cut with and mounted on spellbinders mats with some ribbon and a Graphic 45 background paper. For the sentiment I found a typewriter key font and downloaded, printed it out, edged with DI and stickles. Most of it has been stapled together and I added a small metal clip and a red paperclip to give more of the office feel to it.
