A happy typewriter

...is there really such a thing? I was gonna say no when the thought first popped in my head, but then I thought of one of my good friends who loves to write, and then looking at this card, I almost wonder.

This card was inspired by two things - THIS super sweet card, and then the exploding flower power thing was inspired by THIS pin.

I'm not quite satisfied with the way the card turned out, so I might give it another go except in purple tones, for my writer friend.
Anyways, this is for the new Hero Arts One Layer challenge - I used a bunch of random sets for the flowers, but I primarily used the Typewriter Notes and Sundrifter: Love This. I also used some new to me Hero Arts ink - honestly, I don't know my inks at ALL, so I don't remember which grey shade I used exactly, but I do love their cube sets - a great way for me to see which colors I like and how I like the ink.

Thanks for stopping in!
