Birthday bike

Yesterday was DH's birthday, we had a quiet supper at home as we went out to celebrate last week while older son was still here.  He loves his old motorbikes, not sure how many we have in the garage (I don't want to know!) so this image of a Norton looked like a good choice for him, it came from Stitchybear.  It's a detailed image and I gave it minimal colouring, mostly greys. The sentiments are Joanna Sheen and the clock cogs around the base of the easel are from Stampin' Up.  MS bubble punch got an airing as it's not too feminine, DP is Basic Grey.
My card is for the following challenges:
One Stop Craft - easels
Incy Wincy - fancy folds
Pile it On - fancy folds
Ooh la la - punches or dies
Victorine Originals - easel cards
One Stitch at a Time - favourites (Copics, Distress Inks, punches, Basic Grey DP)
