PIO #39 - Fancy Folds

Today's Pile it On Challenge is generously being sponsored by Technique Junkie.

The Technique Junkie Newsletter was started in 2002 as a resource for Rubber Stamping Techniques. The Newsletter is published every-other month, featuring 15 or more stamping techniques in step-by-step format. Each technique has a corresponding pictorial online, and a full page of inspirational artwork by the talented Technique Junkie Newsletter Designers. To date, over 600 Techniques have been published, by far the largest and most extensive library of rubber stamping tutorials available.
The prize is a the new Emboss or Die CD (Value $17.00 CD).

Are we fancy today or what?   The ladies have gone ALL OUT with fancy folds!  I love fancy folds, on any kind of projects.  I think it gives them that extra "WOW" factor, what do you think?
