Grease Lightning!

I made this card for my little 'sis since she was in a production of "Grease" last weekend! I thought I'd try to make it look like poodle skirt.

The skirt is made from a half circle shape cut from patterned paper (retired SU paper). I folded pleats into the paper, to make it look like a pleated skirt. Then I cut a shape to make the dress top and punched out a circle to create the neckline. Then I added the plaid gingham ribbon around the waist.

For the Record, I just punched a circle (1 3/8") out of black and then another (1") out of grey. I then added some lines with a white gel pen!

The background is dots stamped from the Circle Circus stamp set.

stamps: Circle circus
ink:going gray, basic black
paper: pretty in pink, basic black, going gray, whisper white
other: 1 3/8" inch punch, 1" circle punch, oval punch, pink grosgrain
