You Know You're Old When

Wow! What is going on. Saturday it was in the mid 70s here, Today we have snow-so far it isnot staying, but still!!!!!!!!!!! Snow?????? Oh, well, just another excuse to stay inside and stamp, Right?
So, here is a card I made for one of the gals in my craft group who has a birthday tomorrow.  I will enter it in  Color Throwdown CTD187 , to use Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, So saffron and Lavender lace (I came as close as I could with the colors.) I will also enter it in the Sweet Stop Sweet n' Sassy Sketch challenge #154, which was to use a sketch from past challenges. I choose to use the one listed on the blog-it just suited the card I wanted to make.

The Stamp set I used is from Gina K Designs-'You Know You're Old when'. I stamped it with MementoTuxedo Black Ink on Nenah Classic Solar Crest white and colored it with Copic Markers. The DPs:  Penny Black (yellow) and the purple prints I believe are Paper Pizzaz. (I've had them awhile. When I first started stamping I took all those packs apart and sorted them by color-DUMB! I have learned not to do that) Cardstock is SU chocolate chip, lavender and the bottom mat is also a SU green. The center strip is from my scrap bin. I ran that through the cuttlebug with CB embossing folder 'Birds n Swirls'. I cut the Sentiment out with Spellbinders labels and mounted it with foam dots. The focal image is also mounted with foam dots. I added some silver Smootch to the bumper and tires on the car, and some oval rhinestones for the head lights. The flower I made with a flower punch, punching many flowers from 2 DPs and layering them. I also used some on the inside of the card.
