Barbecue Boy

Good afternoon. Been looking through my birthday list and found I had 6 male cards and only 2 female to make in the next few weeks! How I struggle with male cards but here's the one I came up with this afternoon.
The image is a rubber stamp from www.stampingbella.com  and I coloured it using copics. I used a spellbinders die and inked the edges a contrasting blue. I then added 4 brads to the corners - twisted blue and white twine around the edge and tied it at the side. I used a Happy Birthday sentiment and in the top right corner I finished with a tomato brad I've had for ages.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges-
