The Civil Union card...

Oh my! I had to think on this creation...I wanted it just right and I wanted it classy and appropriate...and look at this gem!! I made origami tuxedo shirts and when I started the folding, I accidentally scored a line down the middle - at first I thought it was a mistake but then I realized it looked like Bob's tuxedo shirt - so I ran upstairs to drag out his tux and shirt - and then I thought...hmmmm...cummerbund and bow tie...so, like, totally, like, what I wanted man....



I used Going Gray as the base with the shirts double mounted on black and the darker basic gray...used my ticket corner punch for emphasis, and I embossed the saying in black so it would stand out and be shiny (like the patent leather shoes of course!!) The saying is from the set....uh oh...I am going to have to look that up...and....OMG -its 1/4 after 1 am - ok - since I get up at 5!!! (idiot!) I will need to come back and post the name of the dang set!! Thanks for looking!!!
