Fantastic Father's Day No. 5

For this project, instead of going with a shirt front card, I did a shirt front treat bag!  It's a cute little lunch sack die and the front is just perfect for it!  I used one of the bow dies for the bow tie.  And then, one of the candy wrappers for the rectangle to make the shirt cuff that's stamped with a background stamp.  The same candy wrapper made the collar points, I just trimmed off sections in a triangle.  Added some buttons and there we are!  On the back, I used the same candy wrapper die for the white stitched rectangle and the sentiment "Bow Ties are Cool".  Now, this project has a nerdy undertone.  That's a phrase actor Matt Smith says as the 11th Doctor Who ALL THE TIME!  LOVE IT!  I took inspiration for the colors for this from his costume!  So nerdy!
