Beware - Man At Work

I made this card because I'm booked to have a table at a country fair in a couple of weeks so I'm stocking up with cards, hoping for some sales. The large square card blank is by Craft UK. The backing paper is from a free site (freecraftdownloads) because I was stuck for a suitable paper and a friend pointed me in the right direction. The backing paper was matted on to orange card and navy card. The orange card is from Payper Box and the navy from Papermill. The strip of sticky tape came as a freebie in a craft magazine and as it was a tape measusre it fitted this theme very well. The stamped image is from the Flippin' Men range and was stamped with Memento ink before being coloured with my Promarkers. I cut it and then matted on to the same two colours of card. I used two more of the stamps that came on the same stamp plate - the sentiment and the row of tools. I mounted the sentiment on orange card and the tools on to the navy. I set them both at a jaunty angle!

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
