Pocket full of flowers



My inspiration for this card came from the uber-talented Erin Lincoln.  When I saw her card it was just the idea I needed to use up some of my pretty Making Memories flowers and since I've been sick, the mojo has been non-existent.  I went with a white pocket because 1) I love white and 2) I kept thinking of my daughter's white pants with pink stitching and resisted the urge to do a blue denim pocket.  The green flowers came from here and I cut  the petals of a solid green flower to make the leaves. 

The pocket was cut with my Silhouette. I took my paper piercer to the dashed lines that made up that little swirly design in the center of the pocket so you could actually see the design.  Pattern paper strip is from American Crafts and the ribbon is from Michael's.

I hope you are inspired to do something involving flowers and if you do get crafty, why not link up your creation for the April showers bring May flowers challenge on the ABC DT challenge blog.  You could win some shopping money to spend in the ABC Toys and Crafts store.
