Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge [SSSC20] / Birthday Card #6

I decided to use Karen's fabulous Sunday sketch to make a birthday card for my father-in-law. He's retired now but had his own home renovation business so I thought Billy dressed up with his tool kit would make a great card. This was so much fun to colour! I was going to use blue brads but decided to stick with the hardware theme and go with silver to look like nails. The card didn't look finished without a sentiment so I used the folded ribbon tag which I've seen so many times but never used myself. This was the perfect opportunity to use it to hang a mock hack saw. Sweet indeed!

Here's Karen's sketch:

And here's my card:
Sources: DCWV, Halcraft and SBD cardstock; Pink Cat Studio Dress Up Billy; Memories Black ink; Copic markers; HOTP Tiny Words & Images; SU! Brilliant Blue ink; Fiskars Nostalgia corner edger; SU! brads; Dashes, Dots & Checks ribbon; Darice hemp cord; regular hole punch
