Father's Day Twist

I did this project for the Stuck on U Sketches! What to give a man that has everything? I decided to go simple since the economy is not easy on the pocket. I took a shaving gel and wrapped it with a paper towel roll, for support. Now I can wrap scrap paper around it to decorate.
My background paper cut at 8" high and 7" wide to wrap around the gel. The tie was cut from "Simply Charmed" cart at 7" high 2.50" wide.I inked the sides is the tie with memento rosebud and tuxedo black for the sentiments. I used Pink by Design sentiments: real men wear pink is from just 4 men, the happy came from just for u (I covered the birthday to) and the day came from giant greetings (this time I covered the words happy birth) and the I wrote in the word Father's.
