Sweet Pleats

Tonight was a first of many things.
This is the first attempt at making pleats out of paper! I was so frustrated, but finally figured it out! This technique challenge was for SCS Technique Lover's Challenge TLC205.
I just discovered an amazing new blog called Arty Girlz Challenge. Their challenge for this week is week #17 using red & white as you can see.
Another visit to another great blog is Inspirational Card Sketches. I did this week's sketch ICSketches #2.
Last but not least, this is the first time using my never used Tart & Tangy cherry stamp set by SU! I colored the image with SU! markers, using the "huff & puff" technique
SU! Tart & Tangy & So Very stamp sets, Hearts wheel, ribbon, DP, white & red CS, CB Perfectly Paisley & Frills Borders, cherry button, Zots, Diamond Glaze, SU! Close to Cocoa, Real Red & Green Galore markers, ScorPal
