Plaited Organza Ribbon (not easy!)

How was your Monday? No Monday blues I hope!

I have just spent about half an hour trying to plait 3 pieces of organza ribbon for a card! Now you would think it would be easy right? Well I guess it would be if I had any bulldog clips to hold it to something so it doesn't keep coming undone! Ah well, I got there in the the end!

So here is the card I made using it...

I also used Pink Pirouette DSP, Secret Garden Bundle, Summer Silhouettes and Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

I tore and distressed the edges for a bit of definition.

Cardstock - Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Stamps - Secret Garden, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Summer Silhouettes
Framelits - Secret Garden
Paper - Pink Pirouette Designer Paper (Subtles)
Ribbon - Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral Organza
