…Crazy 4 Pleats (C4C40)

card_1361

Happy Saturday! It's time to get "crazy" again with the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, and we have another great challenge....PLEATS!  It’s my turn to come up with challenges for the month, and you all know how much I love me some pleats…whether it’s pleated ribbon or paper.  I used the image from My Favorite ThingsPure Innocence line called “4-Leaf Clover”.  I stamped her in Black Ink onto a piece of PTI White Cardstock, then colored her with Copics Sketch Markers.  I paired the image with some patterned papers from BasicGrey's Origins collection, and stitched the pleated strips directly to the Kraft Cardstock background.  After adding some Rhinestones, Ribbon, and Paper Piercing the card was completed.

Let's see what the rest of the Crazies have created with this week's sketch:

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and now it's your turn to create a card or project using  PLEATS to share with us. Be sure to add your creation to Mister Linky back at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog post...we can't wait to see what you come up with! See you back here tomorrow with my “Fave Five” picks from this week’s MTSC! Until then...
