You Old Dinosaur!

The {stamps} of Life design team was issued a challenge to *Mix it Up!* In other words, we were to use both digital and traditional stamping in our designs. What a really FUN challenge this was!

I used digital brushes to print a sentiment on the center of a rectangle of white card stock, then framed it with a row of traditionally stamped candles, strips of Basic Grey designer paper and a medallion, the center of which is simply a circle of matching designer print cut out and embossed with nesties. Altogether it makes a funny pun of a greeting!

I remember being 5 years old and thinking my mom was so old she was close to death...and she was only 35! LOL! My, how perspectives do change!

I don't suppose I would be brave enough to give this card to anyone *really* old! It will make a fun masculine birthday tease for just the right person! I do have one old dinosaur in mind! ;)

Here are the links to the designers sharing projects with you today (a few may have later posts)!
eta: Here's a link to a previous TSOL challenge card that fits today's challenge also!
