Sketch 41 Necktie Banner

This is one of two posts today, please scroll for a glitter tutorial!
It's time for another From The Heart Stamps sketch challenge!  Here is this week's sketch:

I chose to go with the Necktie Banner image which I colored with Copic Markers:  E87, E84, E81, B97, B95, B93, B91.    I skipped the scalloped layer since I was going with a masculine image and went instead with a chocolate truffle cardstock mat.  I found some masculine paper scraps and made my banners with those.

I added paper embroidery around the medium panel...it took forever, but it is relaxing and I find it soothing to do sometimes when nerves are frayed.  I added a few other touches; a vintage button that looks like a penny and some washi tape strips.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hop on over to the FTHS blog to see the inspiration of the design team.  Add your card to the linky for your chance to win some fun!  Good Luck!

this is fabulous Michelle - love the way you have stitched the edge of the card, and used the touch of washi tape.
