...TSG50 : Pleats

This week’s challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week- Lisa!  You’ve probably noticed a new trend that is prevalent in the cardmaking world right now…PLEATS!  This week, Lisa has challenged us to use pleats in our card creations and/or projects…these can be made of ribbon or paper.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that features ribbon and/or paper pleats, then go back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (April 19). The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. I will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG50 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Need some inspiration to help you get started? Be sure to head over to the TSG Blog to see the complete list of Trendsetters that have created samples for this week's challenge!
