Bowties are cool ....

.....  Hello again!  I managed to get a bit more time in my craft room this afternoon and I played along with a few challenges and made this quirky masculine card:

Stamps: Viva Las Vegas Stamps - Plate 925 (Dr Who); Stampin' Up! - Perfectly Penned
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; SU - Bermuda Bay
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Cherry Cobbler; SU DP - Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Bermuda Bay; Black Marker

I've used a few challenges in the making of this card.  The colours are from Colour Throwdown - CTD#332, the layout and theme of bowties are from Fusion - FUSION#29 and the word challenge at Just Us Girls - JUGS#283 is MASCULINE, and I do like making guy cards.

As soon as I saw the challenge at Fusion, I knew I wanted to make a bowtie card, but it's taken me ages!!  I used this wonderful bowtie stamp which is from a Dr Who themed set and stamped it on card and design paper, cut them out, edged them with black marker and then adhered them directly to the card.  Very clean and simple.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper, and on the white panel added a birthday sentiment and another bowtie!  Well, why not?

I think I've mentioned that we are all big Dr Who fans in this family.  When Matt Smith played The Doctor he wore a bowtie and always insisted that "bowties are cool!"  I tend to agree with him.  And if you want to see The Doctor, here's a link to him repeating this several times:
