Inspired Paper Pleats

Hiya and Happy Monday! (Is there such a thing? LOL) I am back to work today - the first teacher workday. I believe we have meetings for the duration of the whole day. Hopefully, I'll get to set up my new classroom and get settled soon since we have an open house on Thursday! Anyway, on to the card ... This card was inspired by Dawn's card here. These pleats just looked so fun! Unfortunately, while the pleating (folding the paper) was easy, I had a terrible time with this bow trying to keep the dots on top. Ugh. Still not happy with it, but decided to let it go and move on!

Don't forget my blog candy ends tonight at 9!

Well, that's about it for now. I've got another paper pleats card for you tomorrow - see ya then!

Thanks dropping by!

Supplies Used (all PTI):
Stamps: Friends Til the End
Ink: Plum Pudding
Paper: Bitty Box PP (Plum Pudding, Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart); White card stock
Accessories: Plum Pudding swiss dot ribbon
