Paper Pleating

Hey sweet friends. This morning I have a card I made for Just Magnolia who have a monthly challenge of Paper Pleating. I have never done this before and found it quite different so it was a challenge but I got it done. I had to use this gorgeous image from the Winter Kit (as I hadn't used him yet) and he turned out great sitting on the ribbon. I really did love colouring up both of these and love the hearts - they are just divine. Oh and yes the shape is supposed to be like that. LOL.

Products: Magnolia stamps; SU card and DP; gardenia; SU corduroy buttons; half pearls; Dimensional magic; natural twine; Nesties.
