Handsome Tie



I have been using up bits and pieces of scraps and flowers and ribbons and etc.. on my desk all week in cards and it finally hit me what to do for a masculine card. My husband has all kinds of "mansome" shirts in great colors. (He's not afraid of color - even pink). This was the very last piece of some great navy ribbon from another project and the green jeweled brad is to represent maybe a tie clip or cufflink. This is the way his shirts look when they come back from the cleaners all folded in plastic and ready for travel.

Create a Guy card with the following catch...you can't use kraft as a color at all, 
AND you have to include some sort of ribbon.

So is he handsome? Your card certainly is. You've totally pulled it off with the pretty stripped paper.
