Take a Leap of Faith into the Unknown

I was inspired to join the Take a Leap of Faith Monday challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog by my good friend Hetty. She made some fun cards using a technique she had never tried before and I wanted to join in the fun too!

I took the challenge and made this card using Club Scrap's Paris Flea Market kit.

The technique I decided to try was a tutorial featured on Split Coast Stampers, called the Pleated Skirt Fold. Visit them HERE for details.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I am glad your friend Hetty got you on board for this challenge, Julie! Such a lovely card, and the pleats are a lovely focus. What a great kit to work with! Thanks for "taking a leap into the unknown" with us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge!

      By the way, that's a really cute card, I might have to join in on the fun sometime.
