A simple fathers day card

I made this really simple Fathers Day Card which I'm really pleased with. The Sentiment is part of the Dad's Sentiments 1 pack from Stamping Dragon Designs.

I have printed the sentiment out on some blue Bazill card and then cut it out with my spellbinder frames, I've then cut the frame again but in coredinations card, embossed the pattern around the edge and then sanded it to allow the black core to show through. I've then added a blue eyelet and some blue ribbon to turn the whole thing into a tag. I have used foam pads to raise the blue section.
The backing paper was from a stash swap I think it is papermania but not sure which collection and then I have added some card candy from craftwork cards to finish it off.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts week 53 - Tag/Label 
Die Cut Dreams challenge 49 - Words no stamped images
Tuesday Taggers - It's a mans world
I Love Digi challenge 8 - For my Dad
