Roses & Ribbon Pocket Card

When I decided to use this Full Bloom Rose digi this week from Happileigh Scrappin all I could visualise was a pot full of flowers. So I made a Flower Pot Pocket Card and changed the dimensions to suit my image. I used a kraft coloured cardboard scrap of packaging that had black marker writing on it and most of that is concealed by being either under designer paper or inside the pocket, but the kraft colour was just right for what I had in mind. After I made the base of the card I sponged the edges with pink ink inside and out and now it’s finished you would never that I recycled this cardboard but I’m trying to be thrifty and even the ribbon is from a box of chocolates I was given about three years ago.I also used a second lovely thick ribbon underneath and the sheer one over the top for a lovely effect. There is some gain by being a hoarder and today was the day I used a few bits and pieces up that have been in my stash for years!!! Roses Sept 2012 008
