Ribbon Pleating

Hello, I'm running somewhat late today, I blame it on work! and the fact that I did the late shift last night then a sleep in followed by the early shift today, so kinda got home sat in front of TV and didn't move again till now and thought I really had better post this!  especially as I have a long day, sleep in tomorrow followed by the early on Sunday! lol
 Anyway it is still Friday which means a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week the wonderful Nick has chosen a theme of Ribbon Pleating and we have a wonderful sponsor this week...

So onto my card, well ribbon pleating isn't something I normally do so I was a little worried till I remembered some gorgeous ready pleated ribbon I had won sometime ago so that was my starting point for this card!  well we all need a starting point! lol  I loved the muted colour of the ribbon and thought it would work well with the Kraft then I thought those colours we great for the 'In the 20's' image from The Paper Shelter and then matched it all up with the fabulous patchwork paper from Bearly Mine Designs so finished off by embossing the Kraft, added some gems, gem strands and flowers from my stash.  So after being worried I ended up with a card I'm really pleased with. Do pop by and check out what pleated ribbon treats the other awesome members of the DT came up with, they really rocked this challenge, loads of fab inspiration for you.
