His age well he’s key of the door (21) + 50..yep getting on a bit ..lol…and
this is his B/day card I made..he was a biker at the tender age of 18.. phew THAT long ago..
just take a look at this old photo below..dont think he’s changed that much.. hehe..
Image is Prairie Fairy  digi  Harley Boy , I went for a mono look, coloured with markers
I have used glossy accents on the glasses & the bike head light.. simple matt & layered,
DP is DCWV ? the front cover is missing, the black shinny piece of card
across the centre is packaging from some flowers , I put thro a diamond CB E/B folder,
twine from stash, button from me button tin. sentiment is DIY comp. generated..
His B/day prezzy was 2 new Koi..for his pond..one of them is B/white too a Bekko.

Love the picture - what a cool 'cycle! My DH was a dare devil when he was younger as well - so glad he grew a bit more conservative because I would hate to be worried about him on the roads around here (Alabama drivers are insane). Your card is super cute and very well done. Perfect card for the Dude Time Doodles Challenge.
