Wow--this challenge to use pleats was fun!! I'd never used pleats on a card before, and I really like the result. I needed a birthday card for my sister, so it was a great opportunity to try out pleating!! My card took way longer than it should have (not because anything I did was complicated, but because it took so long to find the perfect combination of materials and the right layout), so I'm way behind on my work for today, but I'm so pleased with my card (so that makes it worth it, right?? That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!!
Anyway, here's my card:
Thanks for a super challenge, Julia!
