Triple Play Card




This card is for 3 challenges:
JUGS - sketch
CR84FN - light pink, dark pink, chocolate
ODBDSLC - choose any challenge of the top 10 challenges this past year - I chose "Sparkle".
This was my first attempt at making a pleated flower and I had a time keeping the ends together. I didn't have it quite long enough, so the pleats are stretched more than they should be. I used glue dots, score tape and Zip Dry glue to anchor that sucker down - lol - and it still wants to pull apart! Grrr! The flower is made with 2 sizes of Martha Stewart's waterlily punches and the edges were sponged with Pretty in Pink ink. I love my new doily edge die that came in the mail today from MFT! Some bling and a Verve sentiment from Love's Flower (stamped in Chocolate Chip) complete the card.
PAPER: DP by MFT, Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink, Neenah Solar White
