Celebrate Today

This card is going in my anniversary/wedding card stash. I really like how it turned out! I envisioned a similar card in my head, with different colors, so maybe I'll try that next.
To make the "ruffled" paper edge, I took a strip of paper (1 x 11") and scored at 1, 2, 2-1/2, 3-1/2, 4, 5, 5-1/2 inches, etc. This gave me the 1/2" pleat you see here. Hope that makes sense. The whole main panel is popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for popping in today!

Supplies:
stamps - Tea Time Toile (Unity), Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
paper - melon berry, baja, choc
ink - rust, choc
acc - olive gg, dimensionals, oval punch

I can see why you are pleased with this card Becky it is amazing! I really like the use of the pattern on the paper and the way you created the texture with the folded paper! The green ribbon and simple sentiment make a truly elegant card!
