Finally Friday and Time to Tie One On!!!

Hello all!!! Did I grab your attention with that title??? This week our creation comes from Adriana Benitez and has she been creative!!!

Here's what she has to say about her card:

I was playing around with ribbon the weekend and was trying to come up with a "different" way to use it. I thought I'd use the wider ribbon and see if I could get it to look like a man's tie. It worked!

I think you could use this for a Father's Day card, Congrats (promotion at work?), Graduation card, etc. But here I wanted to use this Cottage Wall paper so I made a Newlywed card instead. (I was hoping the two rhinestone brads on the top right would resemble earrings....)

Oh - and my hubby deserves some kudos - he held the paper and ribbon in front of him to show me how he ties a tie since I had no clue :)

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry,
Orchid Opulence
Other/Tools: Clear Circle Rhinestone Brads, Ice Circle Rhinestone
Brads, Large Oval punch, Movers & Shapers Die, Old Olive 5/8" Satin
Ribbon, Big Shot

What an awesome idea Adriana!!! Need to try this out, but I have no man to help me tie it!! I'll figure it out!!

Happy Stamping!!!
