I am back with a layout I made for Pages with Papertrey. The challenge is to use ribbon on a layout. I am not a big ribbon fan myself so this is a challenge for me. I recall Dawn (one of Papertrey Ink's design team members) doing the ribbon pleating technique in one of her cards here. I decided that I will use the same technique for my layout.
Last Mother's Day, my DD gave me a handmade card which she did with her Dad. Apparently, they went through my stash looking for paper when I was out one day. It's good that I keep my good supplies (aka Papertrey) somewhere not very visible.
I used Papertrey's patterned paper and ribbon (Smokey Shadow), stamp (Calendar Basic for the date) and button. I also used kraft cardstock from Michael's, fuchsia PP from an old SU set and Lifestyle Craft's Ring Master alpha die.
Here is a close up of the journaling and ribbon pleating...
And a close up of her masterpiece..

Thanks for looking!
