My best friend turns 50 today!

Good day

Today my best friend turns 50! Of those 50 years I was lucky to spent 24 with him. He loves his motorcycle and have a KTM, so I just had to use orange, black and white, and we love to see the world, not necessarily with the motorcycle though and we are children of Africa, kind of earthy. This image from Dr Digi called Flossie's day out I have found quite suitable for this memorable occasion! I have coloured it with my Prisma pencils and some chalk for the distressing. I used paper from my DCWV Safari chic paper stack. I used kraft paper as base paper, thought it will enhance the earthy feeling. The sentiment I have found some while ago on the internet. As embellishments I added the 50 peel off stickers on the side car. I used a Acacia  tree die and add a bear brad, though there is not bears in Africa, but it is the only animal I have in my stash and the coulr fitted the scene. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Craft Rocket #82 - Birthday
Sweet Stampin - Masculine makes
Stampin Sensation - I love... I'm not sure where in the spectrum I'm in, since I do not do CAS, but shabby chic sometimes is a bit overdone for me. 
C.R.A.F.T #600 - Masculine
Incy Wincy - For the men and/or Kraft paper 
Creative knockouts #404 - Recipe - 1 digi, 1 sentiment, 2 pattern papers, 3 embellishments
Crazy 4 Challenges #587 - The Great Outdoors
Aud sentiment #276 - Anything goes with sentiment

Hope you have a fantastic day!
Hugs from Africa!
