Passionately Artistic

This week at Passionately Artistic I chose to do a thank you inspiration for a friend. It is a pocket card. I love this beautiful vintage print so I just tore it out and stitched it onto the base to form the pocket. The colors were a little pale so I enhanced them a bit with some watercolors. I also cut out some of the flowers and popped up for some dimension. The base is made with My Minds Eye paper that I stitched, stamped with some flourishes and added the sentiment. The friend poem tag is actually a bookmark and the other tag has two pockets. One for the teabag to make a cup of tea to sip on while reading her favorite book that she can purchased with her gift card. The tags were made with several of my new Spellbinders nesties. A button and some hand dyed ribbon finishes off the tags. Be sure to stop by and check out all the great inspiration the team has for you.
Supplies: SU, Bazzill & My Minds Eye Paper, Spellbinders Label #10,14 and17, hand dyed ribbon, misc. button, stamp and jewels.
