Can You Case it #70 May Flowers Challenge

I know, I know I am late!! But life sometimes gets in the way of my craftiness! Having a child with ADHD has proved to be a challenge!! So on Saturday I chose to spend time on my horse instead of in the craft room!!! Riding always has a way of keeping my life in perspective. However, I have a BAD sunburn, chapped lips and sore legs!!!

So I whipped up this simple little cutie on Sunday morning! A happy little pocket card made using the Mini Treat Bag!

I started this card using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Die with Brushed Gold Card Stock to make my pocket. I embellished the outside using a strip of Gold Soiree DSP cut at 1.25" to create a belly band of sorts. I then used the Pansy Punch and made these lovely flowers using the I Love Lace background stamp that had been heat embossed in Gold and adhered them using the Stampin' Dimensionals. The center of these flowers were created using the large pearls from the Artisan Embellishment Kit. The little Hello banner I made using Pear Pizzazz ink from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. I actually was too lazy to break out the framelits so I fussy cut it out with our awesome Paper Snips and also adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals!

Now for the inside! I simply cut at 3.75" X 5" piece of Brushed Gold card stock to fit inside the Mini Treat Bag! I then did a matted layer in Very Vanilla. I stamped this layer with the flower from Butterfly Basics in Memento Tuxedo Black and used my Stampin' Write Markers in Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride to color the flower. The center of the flower was actually colored in Gold Wink of Stella! The sentiment also from Butterfly Basics was stamped in Pear Pizzazz. I made the cute top by using the Vintage/Retired Round Tab Punch (wish they would just bring this back). I then punched a hole in it to embellish with 1/4" Cotton Ribbon and Venetian Crochet Trim!
