Good morning all, and happy Hump day. Today's card has been dragged up from my stash of unblogged cards, as it's been that long since I made anything, I am running out of things to show 😲lol. 

I saw a card like this last year on Pinterest. But when I went back to try and find it again, so I could link to it, I can't find it........ So if anyone knows who made the original one, I will be happy to add it in.

I just loved the idea, and thought it would be perfect for my son-in-law's birthday last year. I used the PC to make the numbers and Oldometer sign. Then printed them on plain white card and inked them with Old Paper, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain, Distress Inks.

I just kept blending small amounts of the inks until I was happy with an aged look.

I cut the frame from brown card and just used a rectangle die twice to cut the windows. Then I added the inked background behind.

I found a piece of coordinating background paper in a Nit Wit Collections pad, and added this to an 8 x 8 plain white card blank. Then added the panel and name plate on top.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
