Speedy Fox & Friends # 106 - Use 3 of Something

I am so excited to be on the design team at MFP a Heinrich Co.!  This is my first sample and it's  for  Speedy Fox & Friends # 106 - Use 3 of Something.   I used this beautiful stamp set: "Sending Happy Thoughts" and decided on ribbon and bows for my "3 somethings".   I had trouble trying to decide what to do with the bottom of the card.  After sleeping on it (not literally...that would have messed up the card) LOL!  I tried  my hand at pleating ribbon. What a fun embellishment!  I will definitely use ribbon pleating again.  I am not sure how clearly you can see the pleating behind the sentiment in the photo but it's cute in person.  For this card I secured black pearls in the center of the flower with glossy accents.  The glossy accents settled around the pearls for an added dimension to the center.  I used Prismacolor pencils and OMS to color the image.

 Thanks so much for looking!  I Hope to see you over at  Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge this week!
