Love You!

TGIF!!!!!
This week has just flown by!  Is it just me?  Not sure if it was the heat that made it go so fast or what...

Today's card was an instant idea that popped into my head when I saw the sketch at Sketches by Carly.  It was going to be perfect!  But after getting the base of it done, stuff just didn't seem to come together as nicely as I wanted...I was getting really frustrated!
The pocket went together perfectly!  I trimmed a little scallop piece to line the edge of the pocket.  The image is Celeste Amberglow-Heartstrings from Pollycraft Designs.  She's so adorable :)  I colored her in with my colored pencils and then cut her out with a Lacy Label shape.

Then stuff just stopped working...I couldn't come up with a good way to string the hearts...I had a different plan for the lower left corner instead of just another heart string...but what I made turned out not so good and didn't work into the card very well.

Then there is the other corner...I hadn't planned on putting just a corner bracket there...but again, nothing seemed to want to work there!
So while I do like how it turned out...it is definitely not as decked out and elaborate as I really wanted it to be...
But it's something different than just my normal A2 card...it's a pocket!
I even made a tag for the pocket!  The tag shape is from Tie the Knot.  I stamped the sentiment and added some paper and ribbon flags for added decoration.  I think the tag is awesome!  Just wish the rest of the card had read my mind and worked properly :)
