Fabulous Friday

Good Morning!  I hope your week has been a good one.  Yesterday was Sweet n Sassy Digi Day over at PCP/SNR and I am so glad that I got to play along.  I did treat myself to a couple of new digi-stamps from SNSS and the challenge was to create a Mother's Day Card.  Here's what I did...

The image is Flowers from Cocoa and as many of you know, Cocoa is one of my favorite from SNSS.  I created a pocket using an SVG File (Library Card Holder) from Penny Duncan.  I did alter it a bit by removing the flourishes because they were much too fancy.  It's also not supposed to fold down, but I added a score line to make it a pocket.  It will have a bookmark and bookstore gift card in it for my Mom.

Here you can see the full image.  I took a tip from my friend Joni to use black behind my white cards.  It really does help bring out the colors and it looks fabulous!

And here's the fold over.  I created the sentiment on my computer.  The flowers I punched out and then ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swirls Embossing Folder.  I didn't complete the bookmark - I started making one and then my youngest son was the one to discover that it wouldn't fit in the pocket, so I am back to the drawing board on that one.

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum
Paper:  Apr 09 Free Digi Paper from Two Peas in a Bucket
Copics:  B95, BV00, BV02, BV04, RV000, RV02, RV10, W-3, Y06,
  Y15, Y17, YG03, YR16, YR20
Tools:  SVG File Penny Duncan, SCAL/Cricut, circle punches, flower punch
Embellishments:  Big Brads, Ribbon

I hope you like my pocket card.  The challenge I'm entering this in is for Just Us Girls (I'm too late to enter, but I'll share it anyway) which was to use a template.  I think the SVG holder qualifies.  I'm also entering this in Digital Tuesday Challenge which is to create anything but a card.  Since this a pocket holder, I think it qualifies there, too. Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a great Friday!
