Bow Ties for My Dad

I know it's way early for Father's Day, but am LOVING the Memory Box dies...and found this bow tie(comes with both the standard AND bow ties) and immediately thought of my dad...he used to wear the long ones, but has become a bow tie fanatic!!  I am going to enter this into the Less is More challenge 57 this week which is a color challenge and that being NEUTRALS.
I used Stampin Up design paper that has all the neutrals and picked 6 colors and made ties out of each.  I scored each of the ties with my Martha Stewart scoreboard (there is an embossed score IN the die, but doesn't show unless the paper is SUPER thick, like chipboard) and layered on chipboard.  I used the Papertrey Ink Linen/Canvas texture plate and a Papertrey sentiment from Men of Life.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
