Totally Ruffled

I made this card last February and finally decided to be brave enough to share it ;o)

I have seen so many cards with such pretty "crooked" ruffles, I just had to give it a try. Bwaaa ha ha ha...See how "crooked" mine is! You should see me trying to make a flower bouquet, all the flowers are in color and height order, not so pretty! But...very orderly. I really need to work on being "messier", it is such a pretty look (especially with flowers {wink})

The ribbon is really pretty, but this card would never fit into an envelope. I am going to look up how to make those box envelopes and give a go at it.

Not this week, though. Paul is on vacation this week. I suppose that is why my mojo took a hike. I just can't seem to do anything in my craft room (not even clean it up, ha ha ha) So hard to work around the clutter. Maybe if I organize it into neat piles by color and size, tee he he

I love this gold paper with the "waves" in it. I got it from Paper Temptress (who else!) and this was my last sheet. Paul said I used up my "tax return" budget already! Now, how could THAT be??? So an order will have to wait. One of the best things about it is that the reverse side is white, so it can be used as a card base. That is what I did here.

The pleated ribbon took forever for me to do, but it really would be a fast and simple card for those who are ribbon literate. The top layer is adhered with dimensionals, which completes the look I think.

Well, I am finished with my second very large cup of coffee and NEED to get moving! Have a super day everyone.
