Happy Birthday Biker Bill!

It was OH's birthday on Thursday and I made him a card depicting him on his beloved Yammie.  The image is a digi download from Karen's Doodles and it is so brilliant and he loved it, especially the verse inside.  I coloured the bike with  Promarkers, the Poppy pen is such a vibrant red and I highlighted the chrome handle bars, head lights and exhaust pipes with a silver Sakura gellyroll pen and then popped layers of glaze all over the top to give it a perfect shine.  The head light glass and the goggles have lovely mound of neat glaze to make them stand out.  I mat and layered the image on to some gorgeous red card from Inspire Me papers and also some of their brilliant silver corrugated card.  The SU wide tape is from the fab Monica of My Many Many Passions and sadly, now the season is changing the light for photography isn't so good, I can just see myself in the little chrome card cardy taking this picture.

I'd like to enter this in the following
