Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

This is my first time participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
Thank you for stopping by.
This month's challenge is to use tissue paper. I decided to pleate the tissue paper to make a border. I sewed it to a strip of cardstock to hold it in place. Using the sewing machine always scares me because I don't really know what I'm doing. I need more practice, I think.
Hop on to the blog hop thread on the Papertrey Ink forums to see more great projects using tissue paper.
Supplies Used: cardstock: Bazzil and DCWV
patterned paper: October Afternoon
stamps: Scattered Showers, Papertrey Ink and Imaginesce
ink: Versafine (black) and CTMH (red velvet)
corner rounder: Creative Memories
foam adhesive: Creative Memories
tissue paper
