Day 328 - I'm a Frayed Knot

The title for this one is also the punchline of an old joke, but it works great as a card challenge, too!
You need to take a piece of ribbon, tie it into a knot (a bow counts) and fray the ends. You can also use any other material that frays easily.

Check out Sophie's:

I really like the effect that this creates - and that's some beautiful ribbon you've chosen, Sophie! I don't know about you, but after tying bows using ribbon, the ends often fray a bit and I have to trim them up. Seeing how nice this looks, I think it would be fun to urge the fraying along and then the look is intentional.

No need to tell a joke, just give us a frayed knot ;)
