Tie card for Father's Day

I'm so behind on Father's Day cards!  They were supposed to go out yesterday to get out to my friends and family on the mainland on time.  Whoops!  Better late than never.  Plus it gives me a chance to enter all the Father's Day challenges this week. :)

I thought I came up with a *genius* idea to tie a ribbon on a card to look like a tie.  Unfortunately, tying a ribbon into a small knot tie is not as easy as I thought it would be...

Ah well.  It looks decent enough, I suppose.  Maybe a skinnier ribbon would've worked better, or perhaps a satin ribbon would've been easier.  I thought it was kinda cute!

Entering into these challenges:
Party Time Tuesdays Father's Day challenge
My Craft Spot's I love you Dad challenge
Getting Cricky's Anything goes challenge
Outlawz Monday greeting challenge - Father's Day/Masculine

'Till next time!

Your cards are SUPER cute!! :) I too have tried to make ties around things that were not meant to have ties made of ribbon!! LOL... YOU were WAY more successful than I was!! I especially love that the striped paper looks like a 'dad' shirt!! :)
