Dynamic Duos #49

It's a Black Tie week at Dynamic Duos, and we are using the colours Basic Grey and Basic Black with a dessert option of a Masculine Theme!  I went pretty literal, doing a "black tie" card based on this card by Becky Oehlers that I saw on Pinterest.  I used my Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the cute little bow tie, and hand drew the pieces to make the jacket.  I wanted the jacket to have a little bit of dimension, so I glued the lapel pieces under the edge of the jacket and bent them back before gluing them down.

I am entering this in the monthly challenge over at One Crazy Stamper (black, white + a colour) where I just happen to be their guest designer this month -  so I have done black/white/gray.  The patterned papers that I used today are from the fabulous One Crazy Stamper store!
Patterned papers are Capsule Collection by Jesse Edwards for Papermania; Cardstock is Black & White Daisy, CTMH; Stamp set is Say it in Style, CTMH; Ink is Grey Wool, CTMH; Spellbinder's die; Cricut Artiste Cartridge, CTMH
