Show Us Your Pleating!

Happy Wednesday to you! My children are elated that they continue to avoid school due to inclement weather...I just wish we could go somewhere! 

 This weeks challenge at YNS Challenges is "Pleating", now don't laugh however I had never attempted this technique before. I get pretty anal at times and I think I was worried this would have been one of those times! I got over it, & here is my card featuring Fairy Fhiona I think this is the first card I have created with this stamp (gasp I know!) this sweetie got lost in the shuffle but happily we were reunited!


OK nix the whole first time ever because while I was pulling up this photo I came across one other card I made many moons ago, yeah I am not a total rubber neglecter! LOL!
This color scheme eludes to blue skies and sunny days all the way, I have all but forgotten what those are.
Sigh....
Well I do hope you'll share your technique of pleating with us & thanks for stopping by! 
Oh don't forget we still have a Blog Hop going on over here , you have until midnight EST tonight for your change to win a fun prize!

Challenges:
Crafty Catz  Flowers
CES  Bold & Bright
Oldie But A Goodie  Fairies or other magical creatures
Papertake Weekly  Anything Goes + flower option
Desert Island  Must use at least 3 of the itinerary
