shake your bowtie (CFC)

Here's a quick one for the current challenge at CASual Fridays.


Here's the catch. A guy card, but no kraft allowed and must include ribbon. Tricky, eh? I happened to have this shaker guy card just laying around (tee hee hee... made it for a recent "bow" submission call) and I thought it would look even better with a strip of black satin ribbon added between the black card and the white sentiment strip. Agree?


Don't you get a "tuxedo" vibe from it? I kinda like it. Check out the gallery. There are plenty of ideas for how to get ribbon onto a guy card!


Supplies for shake your bowtie:
Paper:  CS Bringmann, glitter CS The Paper Studio, recycled acetate
Stamps: 
Ink :
Tools: die MFT, diamond die Lifestyle Crafts
Other: sequins, ribbon

Your a genius! Brilliant idea and love that you were able to get something 'glittery' on to a man's card. All the card needs now is a martini with an olive! Stylish!!!!!
