Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style -Pleats



Hi everyone!  Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style. This week we are showcasing PLEATED RIBBON.  Pleats are all the rage right now.  There are lots of ways to do pleats, so be prepared for some wonderful PLEATS inspiration today!
My card uses the silver 5/8" satin pleated ribbon with a layer of 1/8" velvet ribbon.  The fabulous papers are from the Pink Paislee Phantom pad -this has very elegant Halloween patterns!!  I also used some Prima flowers from the Alla Prima collection.  My frame is made from a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two and the cat image and sentiment are from the JustRite set, Happy Halloween.  
Each week we will have fabulous Blog Candy (this week's is pictured below) made up of the ribbons that we feature.  The winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog to increases your chance to win.  Only one comment per blog, please.  The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. EST on Tuesday, October 11th and posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday. 
Here is the list of today's participants:

  39. Hi Michelle!

    This is a wonderful layout! And, very elegant for a Halloween card, is right! I love the layered Nestabilities as the frames, and how you combined shapes! That looks great!

    The decorated pleated horizontal line is stunning! Those flowers look great and I love the black and white Baker's twine poking out! The paper is fabulous...I would love to put a little rhinestone on each meeting point of the lines...but the lines are VERY close! Your card is exceptional! As I found out last week, I love the look of pleated ribbon with a strip of thin velvet in the center! It is an incredible touch!

    I am so grateful for the opportunity to win some of this pleated and ruffled ribbon. I have none in my stash, and it would come in perfectly now with me finally making my holiday cards!

    Thanks for sharing!

    He IS Able!
