Moxie Fab World Pleat Challenge!!

Hello everyone...hope you are having a great weekend so far....Call me crazy but I'm still up stamping away!!! It's almost 1:00 AM and I have to be up at 7:00 AM to get ready for my DGS Ryan's football game and then Caitlyn's 3rd birthday party in the afternoon...I'm going to be a pooped old grandma tomorrow night!!! Anyway.....I went to the Moxie Fab World Blog about 30 minutes ago and just had to make a card for their Perfectly Placed Pleats Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
I bought a sack full of lace and other sewing stuff at my church's garage sale this morning and when I saw the turquoise zipper, I just knew what I wanted to do with it....pleats!!! The stamps from Darcie's Create set from Stamper's Dream were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and the dress form was cut out and matted with black. The background paper is from Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms and the rounded corners and buttons with twine finishes it off.

This is pretty short and sweet...I'll be back Sunday night with another tutorial for the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast....it's such a fun and fabulous technique and I can't wait to show it to you!!! Thanks for dropping by!!!

Hi Joan! That card is really cute and the zipper pleated so cleverly! It's pretty hard to get a stiff thing like that to pleat, isn't it? I know from experience ... :) All the best on the Moxie fab challenge! :) Hugs from a fellow contestant :)
