WWC62 - Leanne's Tic-Tac-Toe

Most people know how a Tic-Tac-Toe game is played:  you pick a line of three squares in a row which can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.  The only rule is that the squares must be three in a row.  . 

My card for this challenge starts at the right corner and goes down.
I made a Fun Fold card with stripes from an embossing folder and   purple - Blackberry Bliss.  I know this doesn't look like a fun-fold yet, but wait for the surprise inside!

Check out the stripes from the embossing folder.

Inside View.............Now for the grand finale! This Fun Fold is a Diagonal Pop Up.  Look at how excited my little House Mouse is for the Birthday Celebration!

Supplies Used:

My inspiration came from my sister Penny Hanuszak for the "Diagonal Pop UP card.  She made her version of this Fun Fold about 2 years ago.  Thank you Penny!  The instructions were perfect!  You will find the instructions under "Butterfly Diagonal Pop Up Card" on her blog site: pennytokensstampinspot.blogspot,com
