CASE challenge 11 – magic slider

Week 11 is yet another fancy fold card, and it's a golden oldie!  I remember making magic slider cards for my second ever Convention back in 2010.  It's been great to dust off this fancy fold and put a fresh look on it.  I was delighted when Becki chose Becky aka Scrappy Stamper (read more here) as our CASE inspiration this week.
