My first pleated ribbon!

Have you seen this Mojo Monday sketch from last week? I had a chance to stamp on Saturday so decided to try it out. It started out a horizontal card just like the sketch, but ended up being turned on it's side. I also really wanted to try my hand at this fun trendy technique of pleated ribbon. I know I'm a bit behind the times, and I really do like the look, but it was hard for me to use that much ribbon.

I also grabbed my color combo from the Color Throwdown challenge blog. I haven't been able to join them in a while so was happy to put these colors to use. I also added in black as an accent so I'm hoping that's OK.

Thanks for stopping by! I've got more to come, believe it or not!

  2. Just gorgeous, Kristin! You are so clever to use this stamp this way, and then turn it on its side....and that black ribbon really makes a statement! Thanks for playing---it's beautiful!
