A Birthday Card for my Brother!!

Wow, can you believe this, my third post today!! If you would like to see my Craft Your Passion post or Seems a little Sketchy post then please keep scrolling...
It was my brothers birthday yesterday so we had a party for him and my niece (who turned 4 a week and a half ago). My sister made the cake and I made my brothers card!!
Isn't this awesome... My sister makes the most amazing cakes!!

 Now I'm not great at making male cards and really don't have a lot of male images so because my brother is always fixing or making something, whether it be a computer or a car, a bed base etc. So with that in mind I thought I'd use a stamp I haven't used before(and there are so many) ... Fix- It Christopher from Inky Impressions!!
I coloured Fix-It Christopher in with Tria Markers. The papers are all from my Scrap Stash (the SB papers are from Kaszazz), I wasn't sure what else to add to the card so I went through all my embellishments and found my little saw charm that is also from Inky Impressions. I attached it with the twine, then added the stars and buttons and used the sentiment from Make it Crafty!! I tore the paper for a bit of character...
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
* Inky Impressions - Ribbon or Twine
* My time to Craft - Men Only
* Sweet Stampin'- Stars and Stripes
* Raise the Bar - Anything Goes
* Cards Galore - One for the Men
* Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
* Whimsy Stamps - Add Some Metal
