What's The Story Morning Glory?


Time for April's Just Inklined Blog Hop!!!
This month's hostess is our talented boss lady Jak and she has chosen the theme Pleats!
You should have come here from Angela's blog where I am sure she had some lovely eye candy for you. 
When I started thinking about pleats all I could come up with was a pleated skirt. I took a strip of paper and sprayed it with glimmer mist, scrunched it up, straightened it out and folded it like a skirt. Then Hubby suggested that I make a flower the same way...so I did. Lol   Then I went to search my images and found this beautiful Gardening Shelf . I thought it would be perfect for Spring.  
After I got my card together I sprayed the whole thing with glimmer mist to give the card some sparkle. 

Next stop on the hop is Ann's blog where I'm sure she has something beautiful waiting for you.
If you get lost along the way the order is listed below. 
Enjoy!!
