FWF-The Man

Happy Friday!  Today I have a card I made with the ippity set, The Man.  I bought this a while back from the fabulous Noelle,(Noelle offers free shipping, 25 yards of free baker's twine, and discounted prices!) and it has been sitting in a drawer until now. I thought it would make the perfect Father's Day card for my hubby.  He usually wears a suit and tie to work, so this is so him. I will tell ya, that he would probably NEVER wear an orange tie, but it looked cute, so I went with it. :)
I pieced the tie with some Making Memories DP. The shirt is bashful blue from SU. I took a copic marker and added some highlights.  The words are stamped in Night Of Navy in the background. I was soooooooo tempted to add some baker's twine to the top or bottom, but my oldest son told me NO. "No bows for dad! Come on, mom!" to quote him exactly.  Well okay then...no baker's twine bow for dad.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I always wonder about putting bows on masculine cards too. I like that you didn't. Cute card!
