GDT Card for Raise the Bar

If you're looking for my Fussy and Fancy post and my faux suede tutorial, they're in the posts below.

I was asked to guest design for Raise the Bar after a recent top 3 place, the theme is "Pack Your Bags", they'd like to see a project with bags or cases on.  I needed to make a card for a couple from church who are going to live overseas for a while and it had to have room for lots of people to sign, so I came up with this concertina card made from three kraft blanks.
The cases are a digi stamp freebie from Tiddly Inks, you'll find it here, I coloured it with Promarkers.  The papers, tickets, stickers and washi tape are all Papermania All Aboard from the latest Docrafts goody bag and I used some lovely Doodlebug grosgrain ribbon to tie my card closed.  A few pearls and nail heads were all I need to embellish with.
I decorated the inside simply, using washi tape and tags fussy cut from the paper pack.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Moving Along With The Times - Kraft
Digital Tuesday - #204 - Crafting Trends, I used washi tape
Tiddly Inks - #107 - Distress, Emboss or Stitch, I used DIs on all the edges

Digi Makeover - #82 - Anything Goes
My Craft Spot - #93 - Tags
