Never too old for love

   I could not resist this old gentleman and I thought it would make a good Valentine card for the older generation! The stamp is 'Old Calvins flower surprise' from Make It Crafty and after stamping it onto watercolour card I coloured it using Derwent watercolour pencils. I then matted it onto black card. The background papers are green card and red Bazzill Basics paper and the sentiment was cut using Tattered Lace dies.
