Craft Us Crazy Challenge!

The new challenge over at Craft Us Crazy is a challenge to use Something New or Your  Favorite Embellishment.  I decided to do favorite embellishment to use is ribbon.  One of these days I'll get my crafting space cleaned up and I'll take a photo of my ribbon storage....I love ribbon!!!  Anywho....I love to pleat my ribbon as I did on this card and my something new is I took some of my wrinkle ribbon and made a easy....don't know why I didn't try this before.  I love watching all the youtube videos out there where these talented crafters share their techniques and I can't remember who I first saw do this but it definitely isn't my own idea.  All I did was hand stitch a running stitch along the bottom of a piece of seam binding that I glimmer misted and then just pulled and gathered it into the shape I wanted....I then added a button with some baker's twine (2 more of my favorite embellies).  This sweet little happy house image is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo....isn't it adorable????  You can find it here.... you can even purchase it already colored!  Digital Delights has graciously sponsored this challenge and the winner will receive 3 images of their choice!  Here is a little bit about Digital Delights:
