Manly Wishes - Wacky Wednesday Challenge

Hi Everyone!

Here is my entry for MORE THAN FAVORS - Wacky Wednesday Manly Challenge. So there is a bit of a story behind this card. I learned this technique so very long ago when my son's class made neck ties for all of their Dads. Although the ties were clown size and filled with leaves and twigs, I used the same technique smaller scale minus the leaves and twigs :)  I used the Wrap it up cartridge for the tie and the wild card cartridge for the pocket. For the collar I used a white piece of cardstock 1.25 x 6.5 and just folded the edges down to form a collar. I machine stitched the pocket and that's it. I left the front blank without a sentiment to keep the feel of a real shirt.
Hope you enjoy!
