Fancy Folds for Phindy

This week our challenge to you at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is to use a Phindy image and create a card with fancy folds - something other than just a single fold.  If you don't have any Phindy images and you want to get a head start on your Christmas cards, check out the wonderful sale at Phindy's store.  You can get 12 Christmas images for just $2.50 USD each.

My card is a simple, repeat simple, stair step card and I have given this little cutie a pile of Christmas boxes to play with under the sparkly Christmas tree.  Check out the work of the other talented ladies on the design team and you will see why I say my card is simple - their cards will blow you away.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant - Childhood
Ooh la la Creations - Nothing Floral
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Bling
Sweet Stampin - Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend
Totally Gorjuss - Anything but a Square
