Pocket card

When I started this card I had in mind Sue's new challenge on JB: January 5: 'bright and cheerful', using the word 'happy' somewhere, and I used Louise's tutorial for a pocket card for this week's Dottie's World challenge, which was to make something using one of the tutorials. I have to confess that I waivered a bit from the tutorial, but the general idea is still there.

Then I realised that this fitted a few other challenges so well, I thought I would link to them also.

I've used one of my favourite cuttlebug embossing folders, divine swirls, so this fits the challenge this week on the Cuttlebug blog to use a favourite embossing folder for challenge 14: be inspired.

This week's ABC challenge is W for wallet card, so, obviously, this card is ideal for that.

Having made the card using bright and cheerful colours, it meets the requirements of this week's Mixed Media Monday to use primary and secondary colours.

And, lastly, Stamp Something this week asked for 'birthday somethings'.

I used K & Co Brenda Walton BW Mira Speciality card and the background and tag are made from some card I got at Poundland ages ago. I made an extra ATC when I did my swaps for BF (post below), so I incorporated one on the tag for this card.

Apologies for the reflection of the flash - daylight had faded by the time I'd finished.

I'm also going to show this as another card on CBC for CBCC080 pocketful of posies.
