Well, you all know my cards are very shishi-foofoo - so o o o - when I have to make a male oriented card (as my daughter asked me to make) I am very much out of my element.
It forced me to look into boxes that have been neglected for a long time and I have the dust to prove it!!! LOL A whole new world opened up to me as I felt like I just found a bunch of new stamps!! The wooden handle on the stamp read "Stampscapes/Meadow" and it is from 1993!!! Can you believe it!!!! And better yet - I had never used it!!! LOL!!!!
Now that I am into distress inks everything I have takes on a new look! Here is my card, and thank you so much for spending some time with me, take care, and I hope you can find something "old" that feels like "new" - wish I could say that about some of my body parts!!! LOL Hugs ~ CaroleAnn:)

Background has all been done with distress inks - Abandoned Coral, Iced Spruce, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass. Stamp used - "Meadow Lge" - Stampscapes - Inked with Versafine Onyx Black
I put in some black birds flying in the distance with my Copic marker
Sentiment is from a set of freebies I received in a Card Magazine!!
I distressed around the edge with my Scissors.
Decided to use some Black Soot distress ink around the edge of the whole card but already took the picture! :)
