A Birthday Card for the 'Fix it Man'

I did say in an earlier post I was going to play again with the
Sketch Challenge over at
and decided to go with a Male Theme.
 I have had these tool dies from Marianne Designs
for ages and hadn't yet used them so I thought
they would be perfect for this Sketch.
I used red & orange card stock for my
base and matting - also using the orange for
a few of the tools.
I inked them all to give a worn look and
included the silver embossing and the
DP from Farmhouse Paper Co.
I just love the shoe marks - a great touch I thought.
The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping.
I really enjoyed getting away from girly cards.
We never seem to have many male cards in our stash
so this is one to add to my collection.
Hubby's birthday is a little way off so this will
come in handy when that time comes.
Thanks for dropping in.
