Duo Challenge: Cas-ual Friday/ MIM#100


 I am leaving on a 10 day cruise to the Eastern Carribbean in a couple of days. S ince I need another thank you card, I thought I would check out one of the challenges. This week Cas-u-al Friday has a challenge to make a card with one side long and one side short.



Here's my card:  (Sorry for the blurriness of the picture.)

Because I didn't have an envelope for this card, I decided to make one and play along with this week MIM #100: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments. My card is oversized and the button hangs off a bit too.

 
 
 
 
 
 
I just continued the pattern on the card onto the envelope.

  I made my envie using a plain piece of Dark Chocolate card stock cut like this before I used Scor tape to secure it..
 


Here's an up close shot of the BB: Medallions using Kraft and Aqua Mist.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Love this. Yorr colors are so relaxing--you must be in cruise ship mode already. Bon Voyage!
