This weeks Challenge will run from 12:01am USA EST Saturday, February 20th until 12pm USA EST Friday,February 26th.

The challenge this week is to create a card or paper craft project that uses the following recipe:
Pleated ribbon/paper
Fibres (think twine, yarn, cording etc)
3D effect (think pop dots, souffle pens, glaze etc)

You may use any Robyns Fetish image

The winning creation will receive 3 images of their choosing.

Please leave a link to your challenge creation in the comments section on the Challenge blog - linking directly to your creation (not just your blog)

So here's my card for the challenge

The digi image gardeningdaystamprf was perfect for this challenge. And I coloured it with my "new fav" colouring medium  - my water colour crayons and water brush. Then layered it onto plum coloured background paper and onto popdots to give a 3D effect to the card. Then onto green patterned paper and this was placed onto a textured brown cardfront.
I handmade the pleated flower using a strip of multicoloured patterned paper accordian folded to achieve the pleats, affixed to the card with a pop dot and a pink coloured jelly accent for the middle. The leaves and flower stem are good ole garden twine.
