Pleating and a Party Dress

I couldn't pass up the MFT VIP kit last month (you get a new, to-be released stamp set 2 weeks before it's released and a whole bunch of other goodies, for 1 great price!). When I saw the cute little party dress on Who's That Girl, AND then the adorable number candles, I was SOLD! Who's That Birthday girl is a great birthday set, and you can never have too many of those! I inked her up, and pieced her with more of the MME, Quite Contrary dp (are you sick of it yet???? I'm not! LOL!) and used the sketch from the Wed. Stamp Club challenge to put this card together. Then Joanne's Blogoversary challenge this week was to fold or pleat paper or ribbon, I thought it would look great with the cute little party dress on WTG. FYI, I've got a tutorial coming up on pleating, so stay tuned for that in weeks to come! Of course I couldn't help but finish the card off with some of this gorgeous satin ribbon (it was also part of the VIP kit!). What's a girl to do without ribbon??? In all fairness, I did leave off a button, but to be honest, I feel like my bow is so naked-eeek! I'll be okay, less is more sometimes, isn't it.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Hugs, Lisa
