Wild card

This is this Laura's sketch 20 on 2 Sketches 4 You this week:

I used my Cricut wild card cartridge to create this pocket card, which is just right also for this week's challenge 24 on BG 'pockets' (two BG challenges in one afternoon!). I used Urban Couture Gabardine for the main pocket and Urban Couture Poplin for the inside card, with flowers and circles made out of these two papers.

The pocket is about the same size as an A6 card, so it can be put into a C6 envie.

The flowers on the inside card were created with the Cricut cartridge 'walk in my garden'. This month's theme on Joanna Sheen's challenge forum involves using paper flowers, so I'm linking for that.

Pocket closed (using a length of ribbon threaded through the centre hole and tied:

Pocket open (with card inside):

The Happy Birthday sentiment is one from Craftwork Cards.

Please don't forget my blog candy - today is the last chance to leave a comment - it's still open until midnight.
