50th birthday

Here's a card for a family friend that's turning 50 today.
As he's always trying to annoy me with snide remarks, he's getting kind of an evil birthday card now...

The texts means something like that:

Georg is getting older now and his bottom is getting colder and colder. Therefore he is getting some cinder so that the fire is burning briskly to keep the apartment warm so that it is nice there in winter as well and then Karin will stay at home with him more often.

His present had been a big palett full of firewood (in the right size for his chimney)...

Stamp: "Dwarf 4" from Mo Manning
Sentiment: Martha Stewart Punch; Numbers are WordArt (cut out)
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell, Joy Crafts Decorative Chalks
Sketch: Sunday Sketch & Stamp
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Punch: Martha Stewart Punch "Happy Birthday"
parts of a windmill palm as embellishment
Wooden paper, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
