You. Are. Old.

I was just sort of playing around with the two most recent Unity KOTMs and had no ideas in mind but trying to work on a masculine card and then I saw an argyle piece of patterned paper I had with several shades of greens and browns and it gave me an idea for this card.  I stamped this amazing argyle stamp twice side by side in Versamark ink and then used some chalks to color it in.  I used Vintage Photo distress ink to shade a piece of white cardstock and cut out the argyle and adhered it to the cardstock and then stamped the vintage card and the sentiment to finish it. 
I am linking this up to Unity's Friends with Flair and can't wait to see all of the lovely projects that my Unity peeps have created and linked up today!
