Corrosive Challenge # 161 - Know When to Fold 'Em

"This is Halloween, this is Halloween".  Close enough anyways!  My son has been cracking me up lately singing the theme song from A Nightmare Before Christmas.  He saw it for the first time recently and can't stop singing.  He is also partial to The Monster Mash.  It's no surprise that he is a fan of Halloween, as it is one of the hubby and my favorite holidays.  We try to go all out with lights and tons of carved pumpkins, and decorations that move and make spooky sounds or talk to you.  We are hoping the impending storm doesn't interfere too much with the big day.

This month at The Corrosive Challenge we welcomed back an amazing Sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs. There are some awesome new Disney Villain and Halloween releases available right now. Perfect for playing along with our challenges!  Be sure to check them out.

For the last of our October challenges, we want to see if you "know when to fold 'em" show us a card with more than one fold.  This was another good challenge for me, as the only "fancy fold" I have done is an easel card.  I cased a card from my teammate Regan from Charmed Stamping and tried out a twisted easel.  It really was quite simple, and yields a very cool result.

 This card was for my dad for his birthday, ANOTHER October birthday boy!  My cousin, son, dad, Grandfather and co-worker all have October birthdays!
My dad has always loved nature, and the outdoors, and hiking, camping and going on adventures.  Last year for his birthday he was on an unguided rafting trip down the Colorado river for 3 weeks!  I chose to work with the Green Man image from Delicious Doodles.

Green Man is colored with Copics, with glossy accents and some stickles added for some dimension.  Sketch was # 227 at Sketch Saturday.

Papers:  Bo Bunny "Apple Cider Autumn", "Apple Cider Stripe".
Embellies:  Jolee's Boutique Dimensional Felt Acorn, EK Success Maple Leaf stickers, Hemptique Metallic classic cord, Ribbon, brads and pearls from stash.

Can't wait to see all the Fancy Folds people come up with for our new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge.  

Hopefully the impending Hurricane is not as bad as they are saying, hope everyone stays safe and sound.
