Now, on to my card for today, which I made for Moxie Fab World Perfectly Placed Pleat Challenge .

As you know, lately I've been playing with vellum a lot and that's what I used for this challenge. The banner & the grass were made using pleated vellum. For the banner, I pleated the vellum, glued, stamp it & then fussy cut it. With the grass, I only pleat & glue it, then free hand cut the grass. For the tree I used regular patterned paper, also pleated. Then added some blings.

I am happy that lately I've been able to use a lot of my scraps. I have 5 full boxes of scraps. So, I need to use them up!

Thank you for stopping by here and I hope you will join me on the blog hop. Have a great week, everyone!!
