Just Magnolia meets Stamps & Smiles

Another card for you today & this time I have used my first new technique of the year. Just Magnolia have a brilliant tut by Mina on how to do Paper Pleating. Once you have seen it, it will probably remind you of the concertina fans you used to make as a child.

Sketch.......SASSC47.......Stamps & Smiles
Theme.......Paper Pleating.......Just Magnolia

I have used my faithful Tilda for this card & tried to colour her slightly different from normal but still ended up using Lilacs. They just seem to suit her so well. Had a white rose that I coloured using Copics & added Stickles to. Have added quite a few gems to this card too.

Took part of the sketch & the Paper Pleating through to the inside of the card & added a circle for the message. xx Clare x
