    I seem to be stuck on ribbon section. I am following exactly what you have shown; however, the ribbon effect is not showing up. I have tried using the pen tool differently and changing the gradient to see if anything will show up. No luck. I must be missing something, but I am not sure what. I hope you can help me understand that step so I may get it to work.

    Thank you
