Bah Humbug Challenge 17 - Pleats and Ruffles

Wow .. Another fab. challenge has been set over at Bah Humbug
Challenge seventeen is to create a Christmas project that features 'Pleats and Ruffles' I had to do a bit of searching of google for inspiration and tutorials on either pleats or ruffles - as not really done a lot of either within cardmaking.
Came across a nice tutorial for making

Layered Ruffled Ribbon

This is my finished card. As you may notice I have a rather bit more on my card than the tutorial showed - of which I think is so elegant and pretty with it, mine is most definately not 'less is more' My apologies about the pic. Was struggling with light as well as camera!

My card also fits in nicely with Hazels Christmas Challenge over at
CHNC Challenge 18 asks that you 'Use a Die-Cut'I got a bit carried away and used more than one ..
