Halloween Chevron Card

This week is finally over.  Yippee!!!  It started out as an unusually free week, not even card class.  
When people ask me how I get so many cards made, I always respond, "easy, I don't clean."  But after a while, the dust and dirt need to be attended to.  It took me 3 days to clean my house.  Then my mother and I got busy helping a friend who moved from a transitional care facility and to a small apartment at an assisted living center.  This morning, while there was still frost on the grass, we watched our grandsons' last baseball and soccer games of the season.  

I had seen a card made with this chevron folding pattern and have been wanting to try it.  I finally got a chance to play this afternoon for a couple hours, instead of stealing 10 minutes here, twenty minutes there as I had been doing all week.

I thought I was done making Halloween cards, but when I saw this folding technique I thought it would be great with this CTMH paper. (Stamps are CTMH, too.)  And there are still so many challenges with a halloween theme.  I'll just save this one to send to OWH next year. 
I am entering this card in these challenges:
