Make It Monday #42 and MFW - Tuesday Trigger



Made this card to enter into two challenges this week.

MFW- Tuesday Trigger - Red and Rustic

I liked the colors in the MFW inspiration photo and picked up the stripes off the pillows.

MIM #42 - Ribbon Pleating
http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2011/11/make-it-monday-43-ribbon-pleating.html
The ribbon pleating technique is totally copied from Dawn McVey's MIM video. She really is the master at this, and I know my attempt is no where near her expertise here, but I like how it turned out :o)
