Hello in blogland!

I started out making this card for a sketch challenge, but did not end up using it for that challenge.  I did another one that I liked better.  I have really been trying to get the pleats in clothes down.  I have watched several video's on You Tube and I found one that really made since to me.  It is all about the mountains and valleys - ding, ding, ding!!!  So I gave this one a shot.  I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I used a spellbinder die for the cut out, lace across the front and the simplify embellishment is by Tim Holtz.  He is my favorite!  I just wish his stuff was not so expensive.  The image is by Wee stamps, paper by Basic Gray & Pink Paisley.
