"If You Obey All The Rules You Miss All The Fun"

Today's card uses the fabulous SECRETARY POOL from Artistic Outpost.
I've used backing papers from an old selection of Basic Grey, I love the grey and lemon tones, something a little different from my normal choice. The top edge has been punched and I have added stamped pencils to one side of my card.
My typewriter has been stamped onto lemon paper and cut out adding the sentiment from the QUOTE & QUOTABLES set. Alphabet brads have been added for a little more interest and dimension.
I cut tickets from grey card using Tim's Ticket Strip die adding the alphabet background to one strip and the text background to the other along with some film strip ribbon and a stamped pencil.
I have attached a hinge clip to one side of my card adding a pen nib attached with jump rings. My decorated piece has then been added to core'dinations card and sanded around the edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
