First card for this week....and it is...

For two challenges...
Less is More - Button or Ribbon *plurals thereof*
Make it Monday - Anything Goes.

So the card I made was this...
I have made mini versions of this and added them to cards, but I have not made a full card one
And I kept it less is more by choosing to do a white shirt, 
I have to say that I am going to make another with a striped shirt but make a tie..
talking of ties... this shirt has one..
On the inside... and yes I know... 
(ginning face)
I have put the top knot on the wrong way up..
you see I thought it looked wrong  (rolls eyes)but stuck it together anyway, 
then fixed to the inside of the card, 
it looks fine.. UNTIL
I showed Paul, who wears shirt and tie to work daily...
first thing he said... the top knot is the wrong way round...!!!
Anyway... I now had a dilemma... 
No more paper left... All gone..
So it has to stay like that...

Thanks for stopping by xx
