Sisterhood of Crafters - Fancy Folds

Happy Day All!
It's time once again for a new, fun challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
Today, Terri is our hostess and she has asked us to create a card using one of those fabulous 


If you follow my blog, you have seen several fancy folds lately ... and here's another one (or two).  I have several Fall Craft Shows coming up and everyone loves the WOW factor of these unique folds.  So, this challenge theme was right up my alley!

Today's card is another Tri-Shutter creation ... this time in MY favorite color of Purple!
Purple has become very popular and so I thought it would make for a good birthday card. This fold has become one of my all time favorites and if you've never given them a try ... now's the time!  They really aren't as hard as they look!  You can find the directions for it on one of my earlier blog posts HERE.

I hope you'll give a Fancy Fold card a try and then come share them with us over at the Sisterhood!  We are always looking to you for inspiration and now's the time to really SHINE!  
If YOU need more inspiration ... pop over to the Sisterhood and check out the awesome creations shared by my Sistahs and Step Sistahs ... F-a-b-u-l-o-u-s!

You have until September 7th (midnight EST) to get your entry submitted
we have a prize to offer this challenge ... yippee!
