Something for the Boys

Hi Guys

Firstly I need to apologise to Mon as I inadvertently copied her card for my last entry.  I was shown it yesterday at a training meeting and I must have seen it and stored it in my memory so sorry and thank you for the inspiration Monica.

How does a male theme sound for this week on Try It On Tuesdays?  The lovely Yvonne has challenged us to do Something for the Boys this week.

I had a commission to do an anniversary card for somebody and I looked to the catalogue for inspiration this time as she wanted one with a shirt and tie so I chose this one

I used the Neutrals DSP stack, however please don't look for the black and white spotty as there isn't one, the lady wanted black and white so therefore I coloured the grey spots with my white gel pen.  I added a pocket and gave it some detail with my gel pen again.
You can't see it very clearly but I have added a line of gems across the centre of the tie for some bling.  I added bling to the collar.

The sentiment has been done using the basic phrases stamp set and the decorative label punch.

Now you need to go and look at the rest of the DT's work at Try It On Tuesday to see what fab work they have done.

I hope you like and until next time

Happy Crafting
