Silver surfing!

Hi peeps

The card I have to show you today is for the 80 year old gentleman that I made the ballroom dancing card for a few days ago.  His daughter tells me that he's into his dancing, and computers, not bad at 80, eh?  Anyway, I looked around but couldn't really find any stamps of an elderly chap with a computer, except this one from Jolly Nation, however, not thinking it's something I'll use very often, I decided against buying the stamp, and bought a sheet of decoupage instead.  Only problem with that, as I realised when it arrived, was that the guy's hair was blonde!!  How many guys of 80 do you know with blonde hair???  So, I set to work with my Copics, and I think I've made him passably silver now?

The papers are once again from Summer's FREE download - Happy Father's Day set, which I love.  They really are versatile for male cards.  Sentiment was computer generated, and then mounted on a couple of layers cut with nesties.  Corner card candy, made by yours truly.

Any comments would be much appreciated.
