When Saturated Canary release this Grey Tie image last week, I could not WAIT to sit down and color her up!! It turned out to be a perfect image to use with this weeks Anything Goes theme for Dude Time Challenges which the Ribbon Carousel is sponsoring.
Since this is for a guy (my husband, to be exact) I wanted to keep the layout and embellishments simple. The layout I used is this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch 163. I started with a Rock Candy cardstock base and accented it with a layer of Icy Mint cardstock. The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye (Portobello Road). The sentiment was computer generated using the Noteworthy font and My Favorite Things Mini Tag Dia-namic. A few silver/grey rhinestones were added to the top left corner of the image. But my favorite part and the finishing touch is the Granite Grey Vintage Seam Binding that I tied into a Windsor knot! :) Can you believe this was the VERY first time that I have ever tied a tie?!?! I had to watch a YouTube video to do it!! ROTFL!!
