getting long in the tooth

One of the guys at work has a birthday this week. It's my contribution to the kitty to make a card. I love it. This time it's for a guy that is actually older than me!!! I couldn't believe it either, lol.
He is the joker on the team and I know he'll appreciate this.

The image is from Bonibleaux Designs and the sketch followed is that of DudeTime Doodles challenge this week.
Hopefully here you can see the heavy use of glossy accents and silver gel pen for the chrome. The image was coloured with promarkers with a chalked background with just a couple of stamped trees to give dimension. This was layered onto red miri to match the bike.

There is an embossed panel in russet red.
The BP is from a RAK some time last year.
The teeth are left over from halloween last year and just seemed to fit. They were threaded on with waxed cord and knotted. The sentiment is computer generated by me. Ink distressed and backed on red miri to match. The whole thing on yet more red miri then a white leather effect CS base.

I am entering this into the challenge over at
