Almost missed the deadline on the challange this week over at the Play Date Cafe. I'm going to blame on my brilliant idea of hand stitching! Here is what the lovely color combo is for this week:
I wanted to to do CAS, but with a little elegance, so here is what I came up with:
My pleated ribbon would have been fine as it was without the stitching because it was tacky taped, but I had it in my head that it needed some silver going through it to balance it out. That's when my ribbon line ended up crooked lol, it's really hard to push a wee little needle through a couple layers of ribbon, tacky tape and two layers of cardstock, I have the bent needle to prove it! :) I was so happy to use 95% Stampin' Up! product because my SU stuff is getting outta control! Here is a close up of the part that got cut off in the first picture.
