Dad's Shirt

I have finally finished my second card for this week's technique challenge. I had actually made this tiny shirt first and then decided I wanted to make the larger shirt to make as a free standing card and of course I got sidetracked with the other one that I didn't manage to get this finished and then it got tooo late. I started up again this morning and then had to go out and have just now managed to get it finished!!!!!

For this one I wanted to make use of my tiny tie & pocket stamps that I purchased a couple of years ago especially for this type of card. Then today while out shopping I found these cute tiny button brads which come in white, black & silver and of course I had to get some and then use them on this card. As my tie was red and black I wanted to repeat that look at the side with the black brads so punched out 3 circles which I attached to the brad before placing on the card.

If I made this card again I would probably make the canvas background a little lighter than it is here, but it is done now so this is the way it will stay.

GOOD JOB!! That looks terrific! :) Love the little pockets and just all the details on this one. :) BTW, could you tell me the dimensions you used on your hawaiian shirt?? I'm thinking I'll have the kids do those in church group WEd. night.
