Challenge #17

This card is for the Bah! Humbug! pleats and ruffles challenge, as well as for CHNC's die cut challenge. I used scrap printed paper for the background, edges inked in dark green. I also had some scrap organza ribbon that I folded into pleats and hand stitched down the center. Red velvet ribbon was stuck over the stitching. A felt die cut poinsettia flower and leaves from Making Memories' Noel collection and a silver sparkly card candy center was added. Lastly, I stuck on a peel-off sentiment. Fairly quick and easy - I even finished off the inside, but didn't get a pic of it. (White paper with stamped sentiment matted on the same patterned paper as the card front)
Thanks for taking a look.


  1. I love how you pleated the ribbon (I've yet to try doing this) and the little die cut flower sets it off. Thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 18 - hope to see you again soon. x

  2. Erin so sorry to hear you are still not 100% fit, but on the other hand it's good to know that you are following instructions not to overdo things. Sending the hounds out from the hall is not a pretty site so I'm glad we have not been forced to take those steps.

    Thanks for the comments on my blog - so kind. Of course you can ask how old Laura is - she's 26 going on 10 on a good day - sometimes going on 6!!
    Take care.

  3. Ruth you did a great job with the pleating - the wide ribbon really sets the poinsetta off well. Love it.

  5. Super card Ruth - the lovely delicate organza ribbon looks so pretty with the pleating and contrasts beautifully with the rich red velvet. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
