Moxie Fab World Challenge-PLEATS

We all do some sort of paper-folding when we make cards. When I saw the challenge at Moxie Fab Worldschallenge about pleats (see here) , I was all more eager to try my hands at it.
I started with the pleats and taped (and stapled underneath) with the Japanese washi tape.
JOY
Here is the close-up for the pleats
I hope to come up with more cards with pleats! It sure adds pizazz to a card!
Thanks for stopping by!
