Pleated Skirt fold card

Good afternoon my lovelies, I hope your
Thursday is going well. I am just popping
by to show you a card I made yesterday.
I decided to go for something different this 
time, so fancy fold it is ! It's called a
'Pleated Skirt fold', new to me anyway.
You are supposed to use double sided paper,
.......well I haven't got any so I improvised.
I used some lilac card I had printed out
a while ago. It has a slight may
be a PP one?

Then I found this pretty flower paper I
had printed out ages ago. I am fairly
 certain it's one I made myself a long
time ago.
I made so many at one time but seem to
 have no time to make them now. Besides
I rarely use papers as I mostly make
CAS cards as you have probably
 noticed lol.

Anyway I made the fold, added a bit of 
stamping and a sentiment using a die, to the
card base. A bit of pretty matching ribbon,
a few gems and job done !

If you want to see the tutorial for the fold,
see HERE . Add it to their gallery too
 if you make a card. Have a good evening, the
weekend is just around the corner  :)
