PPA 106 and Alacardmonkey 69 Challenges

So far my goal of working on challenges has indeed brought me into my crafting space more!! Life is getting a bit hectic lately and the name of my blog is so true - crafting keeps me sane! Its like a big hug -a trip to the beach - an escape from the world for a bit isn't it?

I decided to use up some of my stash on this card - actually if you look at the second picture you'll see the notecard box I made (from a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers). I decided to slowly make cards to fill up this box and leave it looking pretty on my desk till I need the cards.

This is a gatefold card.
It's for the challenge of  Pals  Paper Arts Dress for Sucess - 1 punch, 1 designer paper and 1 sentiment

It doesn't show up on this picture (I took it at night in the rain - not smart I know :)  )but the baja breeze cardstock layer is stamped in versamark with the floral image from Vintage Vogue
This card also meets the requirements of A La Card Monkey for a thinking of you card.

I just found this website - looks like a fun place and I'll definately be back!!

Do you like the big pearl on my card?? My favorite sandals broke and it had these pearls on the straps  - so I cut them off and have them on my table to add to projects.

This is the barebones of the box. I put a ribbon with sparkly things hanging down but haven't figured out how I want to embellish it yet.

Thanks for stopping by!!
