55 1/2 birthday party gift!

Me and my mum were invited to a 55 1/2 years birthday party of a dear friend of ours. Why did she celebrate her 55 1/2 birthday you may ask? Her birthday is originally in January and she always wanted to have a summer party on her birthday, like she could have when living in New Zealand or Australia for example. Here in Austria it is always cold and wet in January.
She wants to make a cruise next year from Le Hawre to New York on a cargo ship as her grand mother did many years ago. So all her friends made money presents to support her dream.

I used a white stretched canvas, turned it around and put all kind of stuff related to a summer birthday party and holiday/road trip on it. On the right is a small peg where I put the envelope with the money. I also used two rub-ons with beautiful sentiments which are suitable for our friendship and memories we won't forget, like this party.

I enter this project in the following challenges:
