I saw this sketch at Nacho Average Challenge #35:

and my mind went blank for a while.  What?  Triangles?  What am I going to do with this sketch?

I can't tell you how long it took my brain to resume its function, but I can tell you that it was LONG, really long.

I doodled on my scratch paper and finally came up with this:

Just black, white and Cranberry cardstock for this card.  I purposefully used only one glue dot to attach the collar (? how do you call that part?  Sorry, really low in vocabulary for men's fashion. :P) so it is not entirely stuck down to imitate some dimension in a real tux/jacket.  I made the bow using Artiste cartridge and assembled it with a brad.  Finally two silver buttons are attached to finish it off.

The inside of the card looks like this:

When I've finished this card I felt that my mental burden has been relieved.  It feels really good that I can overcome a challenge that is so challenging!

This card is also entering the challenge at Heart 2 Heart challenges - CAS.  Just plain old cardstocks and simple scoring, can it be more CAS than this?

Thanks for stopping by!
