Moving hammer?

I had so much fun making this card.  The challenge of moving parts from "The Male Room" was the inspiration of this card.  The hammer and sentiment are from Doodle Pantry.  The set is new this month and is called "Classic Tools".  I think the sentiment is great.  I was thinking of all the different things it could be great for, a graduate, someone moving into a new home, completing a tradeschool class.  The ideas are so many.  I printed the hammer twice and cut out the second one.
Now below is a picture of the spring I made and hot glued between the two hammers.  I used the end of a tiny paintbrush to wrap the wire around.  Any kind of movement and the hammer bounces around.  It is just adorable - if you can say that about a man card. =) 
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Card Mania - Clean and Simple
My Craft Spot - Congrats
Technostamper - Sketch
The Male Room - Moving parts
