Smudgefest day 4 - Twisted Thursday

Evening all. I hope you are all sitting comfortably.
It's day 4 of the week long Smeared and Smudged Smudgefest being held over at Smudgy Antics this week. A week when each person has but one day to create a project and link it back to the blog after being told that day's challenge.

Thursday's Twisted Challenge
Make an ATC with a "twist". You can interpret "twist" anyway 

My Twist - it's not just an ATC - it twists and turns and can be a source of much amusement. I made a "Jacob's Ladder" - ATC sized from the top. A Chunky ATC from the side and room for more embellishment/photos/ whatever.
The front/top cover features a stamp from the Smeared Ink "Urban Decay" set, Heat embossed and trimmed to fit.
