Happy Birthday

The sun is trying to come out so before it does I thought I woudl make a quick card...not sure about it though. The theme for Die dut Dreams was Vintage or no colouring..not sure about Vintage but it hasn't been coloured, so if it doesn't meet the challenge then it's ok I thought I would post it anyway. I also tried to add the pleated ribbon which took me ages as this is something I've never tried before but I've seeen it on lots of cards an is really effective....this was very challenging!! I entered this card in the following challenges:

Die cut Dreams - Vintage/no colouring

Paper cutz - 3 papers

Crafty Cardmakers - challenging challenge

Pile it on - no image/say it with words

Great colour combination on your card. And the ribbon pleating is very nice. I'm so glad you entered it in the DCD challenge this week and good luck.

the trick to pleating the ribbon is that after you have it done like you did, you need to put a dab of glue under each tab to keep it down... and that makes it look a tad more "done". But it looks awesome... love the color palette you used.

thanks for playing w/ us at Pile It On!
