Just Pleat It!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week is coming to a happy end. I am so glad that it's almost over... it's been an insane one for me!!

Today's card features several challenges, 3 to be exact:

Ways to Use It on SCS - Pleats
Delightful Sketches
Kelly Jo's Color Chef - Burgandy, Cocoa, & White

Before I started this card, I knew that I wanted to try out the new Pretties Kit (#109114) that I just got from Stampin' Up!

This was my first attempt at dying one of the flowers. For the burgandy flower (it came out a little too light for me, but oh well) I used a Bravo Burgandy Stampin' Write Marker (#105109) to put color on it and then I used an Aqua Painter (#103954) to blend, I then heat set it with my Heat Gun (#100005). For the top flower, I just used the Close to Cocoa Stampin' Write Marker (#100072) to apply the color and got a much richer tone. I wish I had done this for the Burgandy one, but oh well!

  3. Gorgeous card Riley!! Thanks for playing along with us at Delightful Sketches!!

  4. Very cute! I like the flower the way it is. I think it would take away from the ribbon if it was just as bold.

    Visiting via the Color Chef Challenge. TFS!
