CAS Ruffled Ribbon

A really quick post and a really quick card for you today. I thought I would make it two weeks in a row for actually getting in a There She Goes challenge. The challenge this week was to have pleats on your card and I wanted to try Heather’s great tutorial on ribbon ruffling/pleating.

I haven’t done a CAS card like this in quite some time and definitely not a one layer card in a LONG time. The mini-set Dance from There She Goes has such pretty flowers in it and I thought they would fit perfectly with the FTL #85 from the Clean & Simple blog. When I inked up the stamps, I used Memento Lilac Posies for the centers and Lulu Lavender for the edges. I love the hint of darker colors. I used purple grosgrain from Michaels for my ribbon pleating/ruffling — Heather’s tutorial makes this a cinch and added some Basic Grey half pearls to the centers of the flowers. The sentiment is from the PTI Raspberry Suite Delightful Dahlias set.
