Good Morning,
This week at Crafty Sentiments the challenge is:

"Basket, bag, box"

You can either use an image with this in it or create a 3D project so there are unlimited possibilities here

 
There is one wonderful prize of 


So if you have not heard, one of the newest craze is Pocket Letters. It is basically creating 9 ATC size cards, placing them in a 9 folio trading card holder and then in each one adding crafty goodies and a letter to your Pocket Letter Pal. 
 
I decided to give one a try and here it is
 
 
I used the stamp from Crafty Sentiments called-I Love Flowersr. I then used a variety of paper scraps I had from my stash (a few different companies here) and embellished each one. This technique also helps use up so many scraps. The type of goodies I have behind each ATC are brads, twine, small flowers, pearls, some die cuts.
 
This one is actually being mailed to my pocket letter pal today so I hope she likes it.
 
I will also be entering this one into a few challenges:
