So Old...

I've been wanting to play along at CASology for a few weeks now and the timing hasn't worked.  But I had to join in this latest challenge where the cue word is "Old".  I combined that with the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and the monochromatic color scheme at ColourMe and came up with this tongue-in-cheek card:



Originally I was going to use a sentiment stamp I have from a local Christchurch company, Montarga, which says:  "You're not old, you're chronologically gifted", but when looking for some images to use for the upper right in the sketch, I came across So 80's and saw the "You're so" stamp and that was it.  I die-cut the word "old", painted the letters with Wink of Stella, then clear embossed and came up with this masculine birthday card.





This might end up going to DH for his birthday on Christmas Eve.  He'll get a laugh out of it - I think :)

Thanks for visiting.

I love your fun card Karren - hope your husband shares my sense of humour!! I've been musing this week's CAS(E) sketch too and I think you've nailed it - love that stamp! Great use of this week's monochromatic grey colour scheme. Thanks for joining us over at Colour Me...! this week.
