Buttons & bows for DDCC

Hi there!

This week at dutchdare-card challenges we invite you to link up those cards with buttons and bows.
I decided to go masculine and created this card looking like a man's pin striped shirt, with a paper bow tie made with a dress die cut!
I have cut 2 dresses, using only the bottom part of the dress, and where the 2 parts came together, I placed a little rectangle card stock to hide the joint.

The buttons are also die cuts.








Here is the die, with the components I used.
