Todays THROWDOWN is especially fun!! We want to see paper pleating. There are Lots of possibilities with this theme. The team has a variety of ideas so be sure and join us this week. I used two colors of paper for the flower. The purple strip was fun thru the a cuttlebug folder and holes punched so I could run the ribbon thru. The sentiment cut with a Spellbinder nestie #4 . The edge of the pleated piece was cut with some decorative scissors and stitched on along with the lace. The dp is some My Minds Eye paper I have had a while. The water colored butterfly is a digi from Whimsey Stamps.
This also fits challenges:
Stamp Something: Use a digi
The Corrosive: Clean up the lace and dp
Ellephantiastic: Handmade flowers
A Spoonful of Sugar: Anything goes
Tuesday Taggers: It takes all kinds
Timbroscrapmania: Borders
Alota Rubber: DIY flower
