Age before Beauty !!

Hi everyone................hope you are all enjoying the Olympics x
 How I wish I had an athletes determination and stamina. 

Just a quick post as life continues to be quite hectic at the moment............but I must not complain x

This is a card I made for my brother-in-law's birthday. As you can see I  stamped a time piece on the background and then sprayed with  some Dylusions inks. I also attempted some journalling doodles but they are hard to see on the dark card. The brick coloured card is from Tim's Co'ordinations cardstock and after embossing with one of his Sizzix dies I sanded it down and inked with stormy sky DI, to make it pop.

A few embellishments and some printed words finished it off. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:




As always thank you for taking the time to visit....it is truly appreciated.
