Birthday Card for a Man

My brother-in-law's birthday is on Friday, and here's the card I made for him.



This is an A2 card, using kraft cardstock as the base.  Cut the plaid paper 1/4" smaller.  The tag is from Wrap It Up cartridge, cut at 5" fit to length which made it 2-3/4" tall. Was looking for the right brads to put in the holes on each end and decided to use these metal oval letters I've had in my stash forever.  His name is Ed, so I thought this worked!  "Stitched" around the tag with a gold pen and highlighted the flames.  The Happy Birthday is a Fiskars stamp, and the sentiment inside was typed on my computer.  Thanks for stopping by!

I want to enter this card into the following challenge:
