Shirt Tie

Ok, today's challenge was to mix patterns. Once I pulled my DSP out and was saw this all I could think about was the combinations my brother used to wear in High School. We went to a Christian school and the boys had to wear collared shirts and ties. His way of rebelling against that was to wear ghastly combinations. This is calm compared to what he used to wear. On the other hand my 17 year old loves his dress clothes and only insists on the best. He will be graduating next year and plans on going to a Bible college so he can go into the Evangelistic Ministry. Here he is teaching the Sunrise Service last spring. His message does not start until 19:33. He cringed while I was making this card. :) On the inside of the card I used the Define Your Life set with the word Original (like this card) and Father from the Everyday Flexible Phrases set. I sponged around the edged of the tie knot and the shirt pocket. I think the build-a-brads make a perfect tie tac!
