Garden in My Pocket Card

Working the Challenges here friends!!

This is a pocket card for Flourishes Look Who’s 3 Challenge -- make a birthday card honoring Flourishes;   Flourishes Bring Back Beauty Challenge -- go with a "Rustic" theme, The Flower Soft Blog Hop Challenge -- use your fav color(s) Flower soft, and Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge -- Forgotten Embellishments: Buttons, Brads or Eyelets


The pocket card houses a book mark clip which I now think I should have made a refrigerator magnet.  But oh well.  I made the flower with Sizzix Flowers Die #2 and used a canvas brad by Recollections to hold them together.  I added a few fern branches made with a Punch Bunch fern punch for some greenery.


For my "rustic" theme, I chose the watering can image from ODBD Happy Birthday set, colored it with Copics and embellished with Flower Soft and Stickles. The little butterfly was punched from MS Butterfly trio punch in blue CS and covered with blue glitter.



I used "Heather" Flower Soft which is not only my fav FS combo so far, but it matched perfectly!





And finally, I also punched out a Trelis border across the back of the pocket card along with some more fern branches, which I attached to the trellis, to kind of give it a garden-style look. 



TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
