Exploding Suitcase!!!

No, not the kind with a bomb in it - it's one with an "exploding" insert!  :)

I have made it in Makeesha's Challenge colours for this week, which are Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla.

I've put together a collage, so you can see how the insert "explodes", as well as the little details.

This kind of interactive card is lots of fun for the recipient.

This card uses lots of "bits", but not a lot of stamping.  I did make one up with a second generation all over print to look like tapestry, but it was too strong for my liking, so I resorted to the simple little swirl at the base of the bag.

The sentiment was computer generated.

The tags are made from the scallop square punch.

Edited  to add:

I was very excited to discover that Makeesha chose me as her challenge winner this week.  Thanks Keesh & thank you to everyone for all the lovely comments.  :)
