Use your imagination

Isn't it silly!? I based the whole card around the ribbon, and even drew out a design beforehand, but when it came to the real thing, it just didn't go! I was determined to use it, so adapted to plan B. It looks better with just this small amount of it. (In fact, it looks remarkably like a bow tie!) This explains the title.

I made this for the Skinny Saturday challenge which has an open theme this week. It has a very rough texture as I glued photocopy paper on cartridge paper and then pulled bits of it off with masking tape. I also spritzed with water after sponging on the background colours, giving a wrinkled appearance in places.
