SOG Challenge: Pleats!

Hi all,

I can't believe 2 weeks have passed already, but it's time for another challenge over on the Some Odd Girl blog!  For the last challenge, we had some amazing spring entries, and this week, we want you to show us pleats!  You can make them with folds, with adhesive, with stitching, or any other creative way!

Here's mine:
All of my papers are from the Close To My Heart pack called Perfect Day.  I love the brown, red and green - it's one of my absolute favourites!  I sponged the green piece with some SU Soft Suede ink, then matted it with the brown piece, and the ivory piece.
I cut out a strip of ivory CS, and punched it with my Martha Stewart fence edge punch.  I added some pleats to my Soft Suede polka dot ribbon and adhered it below the fence, and sewed across it.
I cut out a square from ivory CS, stamped my CTMH sentiment in black ink, and I added some Soft Suede ink around the edges.

I printed Garden Mae from Some Odd Girl (from a recent release) onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with a thin white border around.  I mounted her onto a brown piece cut out with Label Four Nesties, and I added a couple of small ivory buttons to each side of that with glue dots. 

Make sure you check what all the ODDies have done on the SOG blog - you'll see some lovely pleats!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Hey Robin! Thanks for stopping by my SCS gallery and commenting on my "boo bees!" It was so kind of you to take the time to look and leave some sweetness behind. This is adorable and your pleats are wonderful--great job. Fab copic coloring, too.
