Heart Song Inspiration Challenge

Today is a special day at Heart Song Inspiration!!

Our sweet leader Leah is returning from a very long trip with some very" special cargo." The adoption is complete and they are coming home with their precious new son Makaio. It has been such a long arduous journey but now they can rejoice he is part of their family. We are
very excited for you and your family Leah!

This week our cards are celebrating his homecoming!

Our Challenge is use an animal image and/or pleated paper or ribbon.

As you can see I did paper pleating.
I chose the sweet Heart Song Image: Precious Baby . It is water colored and cut out
with a Spellbinder looped square. The blue bg was cut out with at MS looped
punches. The plaid was punched with a MS dotted scallop punch then pleated and
stitched down with a zig zag stitch. Dotted around the bg and at each scallop
joint. The ribbon was dyed to match and a button added. The little
name tag was punched with a SU oval and hung with a little white
safety pin.

Entering Challenges:
One Stitch At A Time: Anything goes
Crafty Ann's: Scallops and/orFancy borders
The Stamp Man: Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs: Punches and Dies
