Stamp Simply Pleated Ribbon Challenge and Foodie Friday

It's Friday and that means it's time for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime153)

This week Sharon challenged us to used pleated ribbon (for this challenge gathers count, too!)  I decided to try a really tight gather...those are pleats close together, right?  ;-)  I mixed it up by adding tiny pearls in the gathers.  The ribbon is adhered to the cardstock with tiny bits of Scor-Tape every 1/2" or so. 
That yummy spray of pearls are actually favor ties that I found in the wedding dept. at Michaels for about $2.  I cut off the paper covered wire and attached the pearl spray with a glue dot.  I just love that linen cardstock!  It's Cosmo Cricket's Core Impressions.  You can distress it, sand it, and/or tear it.  I had fun distressing, sanding and doing some meandering sewing on it.

The floral DP is from Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane.  I cut around the image then sponged the edges with PTI's Chamomile ink for some depth. 

Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations Sharon and the Design Team have created for your inspiration:  If you post on SCS or another site please use ssnotime153 so we can find you.  Don't forget to link your creation on Sharon's site as well.

Now for Foodie Friday....I spent the afternoon baking for my DH.  His company is treating the employees to a pig roast tomorrow.  My contribution is Chocolate Chip cookies, BBQ Bacon Baked Beans and this monster Blackberry Crumble.  This bad boy (or girl!) weighs in at 15 lbs. and has 6 quarts of blackberries in it!!!  You northern girls should be picking yours now so I thought you might want some enabling.
