Truly Madly Crafty First Challenge! Summer!!

There's a brand new monthly challenge just started up at Truly, Madly, Crafty to which you can enter any type of paper craft. I was honoured to be asked to join the fab Design Team, and you can find out more about us all here.
The challenges will be posted around midday on the first of each month, and you can enter up to a max of 3 projects which must all be new. They can also be combined with as many other challenges as you like. You will have till the 28th of each month to enter, so lots of time to get creating! The winner will be randomly selected from all the entries and will get a prize of a gift voucher to spend in the fab Truly, Madly, Crafty online shop.

Ok, onto the challenge now. The theme this month is:

For my first creation I've made a sandal. I used a template for the basic shape, and then embellished it. Dp is Anna Griffin, flower has been made by stacking pieces of cream and peach ribbon, then adding a button. All the gorgeous ribbons and buttons are from Crafty Ribbons. I also made a box, (measurements by eye), cut a large rectangle out on top and replaced with acetate. I used a Martha Stewart border punch round the lid and decorated with ribbons and buttons.

I'd like to enter my sandal into these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Shaped cards/creations
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe 30 - Anything but a card

Now onto my second creation for our first challenge at Truly, Madly, Crafty.

I've made a male card for a change. The image is from Di's Digi Downloads and I've coloured him with Promarkers. Dp is Fancy Pants Beach Bum, layered onto Kraft Bazzill. I've added some brown leather cord and a button with twine to embellish. Lastly, I added some Glossy Accents to parts of the image ie: the spade, flowers and snail, but it can't really be seen in the pic.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

The Craft Garden August Challenge - Bold, Bright & Loud
Paper Playtime Challenge 51 - Digi Monday - Summer
Craft Room Challenge - Summer holidays
